Scrappy Quilt I'd Like to Try

Holy cow, I like this one from Pinterest (Russian sewist). Do you save photos of quilts you'd like to try? This one would be great for reducing my scrap bin overflow. 95% of my scraps are 2.5" wide strips. Smaller strips I give to my friend Jerry, the rug guy. This Russian artist's quilt I like the variety of color and pattern, "fits me to a T". (Where did that expression come from, I'd like to know). The Light and dark cornerstones are deliberate--and that is something that peaks my interest. I especially like the skinny sashing, even though its medium to light value is almost LOST. Above, is one of my quilts. Simple, fun to make. Designing quilts on the fly . . . my design idea here was to join Four (10.5") scrappy strip blocks with a light color sashing and orange corner stone. I couldn't decided in the first place if I wanted orange corner stones or turquoise corner stones . . . . so I framed the quadrant block in a dark blue small paisley print accented with turquoise corner stones. Other Bits: A couple years ago I was waiting, waiting, waiting, for Anita Solomon Grossman to come out with her simple cuts technique for "her Wonky Star" block, but it never materialized online. I experimented on my own to build her wonky star block (trying to think it through like Anita would). That experiment resulted in 8 wonky star blocks sitting in my scrap bin, (4) red stars on a teal background and (4) teal stars on a red background. Having no better use for them, I threw them into this quilt for interest.

Urban Cottage Giant Star Quilt

Hi friends! Today I'm excited to share with you a quilt I finished up over the weekend. It's a new favorite and for sure one of the easiest quilts I've ever made! From the moment I saw the line Urban Cottage by Urban Chiks for Moda, I knew I had to have some! It goes with my sewing room perfectly! I ordered a fat quarter bundle plus some yardage and now I have two projects made with this line. [Click HERE to see the other project, my Urban Cottage Tied Blanket.] Here's my Giant Star Quilt pre-border. It only took 2-3 hours to cut, piece and press the whole thing. I didn't use a pattern for this quilt but I had seen it floating around the internet several years ago and always thought it was cute. Jeni Baker has a similar (and slightly scrappier pattern for it with multiple size options and no border). Click HERE for the link to her pattern. I just made 17" (unfinished) half-square triangle blocks from 8 fat quarters and added on 4 1/2" (unfinished) border strips once they were all sewn together. Denae Hansen of Plain Jane Quilting in American Fork, Utah quilted it for me with a classic, cross-hatch design. She always does a fantastic job! Look at that texture! I like that it's a simple design keeping the focus on the cute fabrics and the star. My quilt finished at 74 1/2". Luckily, there was some 108" wide fabric available in this line so I didn't have to piece my back! Yay! A seamless back is always a win! Usually, I like to finish off my quilts with a dark binding. I feel like that frames things nicely. But I liked the subtle stripe feeling of this Urban Ticking fabric in ivory. Again, it kept the focus on the center of the quilt while adding a playful touch to the edge. I'm seriously so in love with this veeeery simple quilt, you guys! Sometimes all you need are some cute fabrics and a really simple pattern and you'll have yourself a winner! I think this one is going to get used a lot. I'm going to wash it soon. Can't wait to get it out of the dryer so it's all soft and crinkly. I don't always wash my quilts first thing, but I think this quilt will be perfect with that worn look. Do you wash your quilts right away or wait till they need it? Well, if you made it through that very long post and all those photos, you get a gold star! Thanks so much for stopping by today friends! If you have any questions or just want to let me know what you think of this super simple quilt, I'd love it if you left a comment below and I'll get back to you! Have a great day!
