oh, my stars

Pattern: My own for the most part. I cobbled together a bunch of traditional patchwork star patterns and drafted a moon template.

Materials: An assortment of solid cotton broadcloths and prints.

I consider this something of a masterpiece for me. My friend Emily wanted a modern quilt, and she wanted to work with a moon and stars theme. I wanted to work with grey and yellow and so this is what I came up with. I made a whole bunch of star blocks and a moon block (which was patchwork pieced with scraps from the stars and appliquéd) and then arranged everything the way I wanted before filling in the areas that needed more solid grey. This was not the most efficient method (improvisationally—on the fly); but, it worked for me.
