Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spherical Stars

This is my second entry in to this year’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  (You can see my first entry here.)

Spring '14 Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.com

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.

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!
