Star Block Quilt Swap

Here’s what I wound up making for the #starblockquiltswap on Instagram, hosted by shoppershaz. img_8818

My partner said she liked Tula Pink fabrics and Evening Star blocks, so I picked up a charm pack and some coordinating yardage and a solid to tie it all together. And a block was born!

I made a little pincushion out of the scraps. It’s filled with crushed walnut shells.

I love the tigers looking saucily out from the flower in this fabric in the Eden line.

I fussy cut four for the corners of the block. I used my BSR and free motion quilted out from the center of the block.

I patched together a back from various scraps and charms, and I EPP’d a little hexi for a label.

I had picked up a fat quarter of another Tula print before the charm pack I ordered arrived, and I’d originally intended to back or bind the mini with it. I didn’t love the prints together tho, so I threw it in as an extra. I did some diligent social media snooping and discovered my partner had a love of sour sweets and nerdy things. I tend to go a little bit over board when putting together gifts, but I restrained myself while putting together the package. My partner took a great shot of her goodies (she’s courtney.is.crafty on Instagram).

It was great fun to put all of this together.
