Second Star Quilt

Purple String Star

Purple String Star 42″x 42″


I put the final borders on the purple string star quilt this morning.  This quilt is for Sydney – who turns 1 in August. Sydney’s big sister, Carly, also got a purple quilt.

(Unfortunately I only have this one unfocused photo of her finished quilt.)

Here’s a slightly better close-up of one of the blocks.



I fussy-cut the toile print so that one animal scene was in each block. A little tedious – but Carly was the first grandbaby of my oldest friend – we met in Kindergarten – and as my children love to remind me, “that was a long, long time ago.”



This second quilt was more relaxed and fun to make – it was more about getting it done than getting it perfect.

The four center blocks.

Once I made a few points, I played around with their placement.

All the points and setting blocks, waiting for the outer borders.

    Those are really pretty. I like the unstructured structure of the big star quilt.

    That looks really cool! I don’t think I’ve seen a string quilt star – nicely done!
