This quilt was started in January when I was inspired by the Sweet 16 Quilt-Along at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I made 10 blue and white 16-patches, but had no plan beyond that. Then I decided to turn them into stars with red points. I made four stars, then tried to decide how many more I would need and how to set them together.
At first I was planning to make twelve blocks and put them together in a 3 x 4 setting with sashing. That just seemed too boring, and I decided to play with some other ideas. I drew up several ideas on graph paper, and finally settled on this one.
On Saturday I cut all the background pieces that will fill the spaces between the blocks. I had started out with 2-1/2 yards of background, and ended up with a piece that measures about 3" x 15". I sure hope I cut everything correctly! I also started making the blue Friendship Stars, which were finished on Sunday. Now I need to figure out how to join the sections together. There will be lots of partial seams, but the final look should be worth the effort!
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration!
