I have never made a 'big block' quilt but I made one this week. Each of these blocks is 36" and with the borders, the quilt measures 82". I wanted to make the quilt quickly for a family member who has just found out she has cancer. I knew her bedroom was blue and white so made her a blue and white star quilt using an assortment of blue fabrics and white Bella solid. I used this 'magic binding' tutorial to make the binding and then stitched it down by machine to speed up the process. I quilted it with white thread using a pattern called 'Blooming feathers'.
I have parceled it up and posted it this afternoon and I hope she likes her 'fabric hug'.
