It took me longer to post this entry as I debated for a bit about what would be the best category for this quilt. I’ve ultimately decided to submit my Spherical Stars quilt in the Small Quilts category.
Size: 51″ x 60″
Pattern: Magic Stars by Aneela Hoey
Type of Quilting: Straight Line on my home machine
Fabric Line(s) Used: Sphere by Zen Chic
Date Finished: March 2014
This quilt was made for Julie at the Intrepid Thread to be used as a sample/display in her brick and mortar shop in conjunction with the release of the new Sphere line of fabrics by Zen Chic.
I loved the colors in this line! And the combination of many low volume prints with the more saturated colors worked really well for the Magic Stars pattern.
The blocks that make up this quilt were really fun to make. They look like they should be really complicated and take a lot of piecing and seams but Aneela Hoey provides a great shortcut method in her pattern (that I never would have thought of) that makes putting these blocks together quick and easy!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my Spherical Stars quilt! I hope you enjoy the Blogger’s Quilt Festival and all the lovely creations everyone is entering!
