I have 2 people close to me expecting little ones so I wanted to make them quilts. One for a girl in pinks, and one for a "surprise" in yellow.
I found a tutorial for this lone star and it seemed easier than I originally thought. Well, it was and it wasn't. LOL
Piecing and making the star sections = easy.
Getting the star sewn together precisely = not easy.
(and just noticed the exploding clothes pin bucket, nice)
This is with two little seams I had to go back and stitch together by hand. I quilted around the star and in smaller stars every 3 rows or so til I got to the center. Then did the triangles and squares in rows. Also had a pieced backing that I don't think I have a photo of. Oh Lori??? - I put in my request for a photo of the bambina with the quilt please. :)
The yellow one is just a real simple patchwork, with a 4 block every now and then for accent. I didn't follow a pattern, just made it up as I went.
Quilting this time on the diagonal, with every other pass having a double line.
Best wishes to the parents-to-be!!
