Wonky Star Mini Quilt

 

 

 

Starry Night Mini Quilt

19" x 19"

Fabrics: Blueberry Park, Lula Magnolia, Threads: Aurifil 50 wt.

Reduction of a Foundation Pieced Pattern!

To make this mini quilt I reduced Jeli Quilts pattern "Wonky Star Quilt Top" pattern by 50%. Then adding the 1/4 seam allowance back to each piece. The Jeli Quilts pattern is available for free from Craftsy.

 


Sew on a folded square piece of fabric on the top two corners will make it easy to hang with a dowl rod! Do this before sewing on your binding at 1/8"! Then sew on your binding and it re-enforces it for hangingn the wall!

Make sure whenever you shrink a FPP pattern that you add the 1/4" back on to the pieces and print them off again.

This was made for the Instagram swap #starblockquiltswap!

My favorite Aurifil 50 wt. thread and bobbini! They work great together!

Until next time! Lisa

  2. Very cute! I love the fabric and thread choices. Stars are my favorite! Reminds me of stargazing in the backyard on a summer evening. Great tip on seam allowances, and I have never done a "hanger" that way. Definitely a must-try!
