Camille Roskelley has released a new pattern called Night Sky and Jana Machado is hosting a QAL so we can all join in and make this gorgeous quilt. Information about the QAL can be found here.
Today joining me in making the quilt are:
Visit their blogs to see versions of the Night Sky quilt coming together in an assortment of different fabrics and styles.
I chose solids for my stars and assorted grey prints for the backgrounds.
In my Moda Shrine (cupboard full of moda fabrics), there was a stack of Bella mini charms and a 5″ charm pack of rainbow solids. I used the 2 1/2″ mini charms for the 4-patch star centres and the star points.
The centres of the remaining small stars and the larger star points were cut from the 5″ charm squares. I did not want to waste half of the charm square using the method shown in the pattern so I used the nifty Folded Corner Clipper ruler to trim the background rectangle and cut the 5″ charm once on the diagonal to yield 2 corner triangles.
My quilt will double as this years teacher’s quilt so I only made a portion of the complete quilt (approx. 48″ x 56″). My lovely, tall son is holding up the finished quilt top which will be pressed, quilted, bound and labeled before friday.
Thank you Jana for inviting to play along with you in the Night Sky QAL.
Night Sky is the pattern of the month at FQS and as part of the Night Sky QAL blog hop, Fat Quarter Shop are having a giveaway of a fat quarter bundle of Miss Kate.
