Blogger's Quilt Festival 2017

It's time once again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. There is an amazing variety of quilt styles on display, and I can't wait to spend more time checking out all the gorgeous creations!

My entry for this year is the Star Cluster baby quilt that I made for our great-niece Flora.

My inspiration was the quilt Interlocking Stars, shared in 2015 by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Her starting point was a pattern called Star Cluster by Judy Martin. Judy's pattern is for a block that finishes at either 12" or 16". Sarah super-sized the pattern into a 64" single-block quilt. I went half-way in between the two--the center of my quilt finished at 32", and the border brought the finished size up to 37.5" square.

I had such a good time making the first Star Cluster quilt, that I ended up making two more for other new babies. I varied the piecing for the centers of the stars and also changed up the borders for each quilt.

  1. I would be hard pressed to say which baby is the lucky one, Julie. I think I love them ALL!!!

  2. These quilts are gorgeous. They look easy enough to make.

  3. Hi Julie,
    Oh how I love these baby quilts! Baby quilt mixed with stars and pretty colors is a win, win, WIN in my block. I'll bet the moms-to-be and babies just loved them, and they feel all the love you stitched into each square. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. All are beautiful. Stars are my favorite.

  5. Julie, I love how you personalized your interlocking stars on each baby quilt! They are all beautiful.

  6. A great go to pattern for a baby quilt. Mixing up the star centers makes for so many fun options. My favorite of the three is the red and black musical stars version.

  7. Such a perfect use of stars, it's stunning
