One of the beautiful joys in the midst of all of the hardships of 2020 was finding lots of new time for finishing works in progress that had been sitting in my sewing cabinet. I started this gorgeous star quilt in January of 2017 and was able to finish it in June of 2020.
The pattern is Starlight Sampler by Amy Gibson. I bought the pattern and fabric on a whim through Craftsy. It finished 96” x 96” which was the biggest quilt I’d quilted to date. It was so large that I needed to glue baste it on my driveway!
I was able to gift this quilt to a dear friend of mine who uses it in her bedroom. It reminded me so much of her favorite colors to decorate with at Christmastime that, as I was working on it, I just couldn’t stop thinking about how perfect it would be for her.
This project was my first time doing foundation paper piecing, which Amy Gibson made so easy in her free class through Craftsy. I absolutely love how perfect your star points can be with that method!
This was also one of my first projects to receive a custom tag. I printed those on my home printer using special fabric.
This pattern is full of so many unique and creative blocks that I think will find their way into more projects I make in the future!
