Blue Stars

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'.



  1. This is beautiful! I am sure it will be greatly loved.

  2. This is lovely Chris. I'm sure she will feel the love and hugs you've put into this xx

  3. This is such a lovely quilt. I think projects sewn with love have a healing & restorative effect.

  4. It looks super! What a wonderful thoughtful gift.
