All gone a bit wonky

Okay so apparently I missed the memo about just how much fun wonky stars are!

I've been waiting for the wadding for my Siblings Together quilt top arrive (which it did on Friday) so in the meantime I made a little wonky star baby quilt using this tutorial.

Even with all the trimming (of which I'm not a great fan - always paranoid I'll chop a chunk off that I wasn't meant to) I loved making them.  Fabrics are Urban Zoologie by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman from Frumble and Klona cotton in pink and pomegranate from Backstitch.

All my new favourite things (wonky stars, HSTs, paper piecing) seem to involve a lot of trimming - ah well such is life.

I've got some Izzy flannel for the back - not a perfect match colour wise but not too bad. 

So next up basting (for this and the Siblings quilt)
Bye for now

  4. I love wonky stars - they are so much fun to make and its impossible to make them look bad. Your baby quilt is lovely.

  5. Your quilt looks great. I have enjoyed following your blog for a while now. A few days ago I was given the Liebster Award and today I am please to pass it on to you. Please see my blog for complete details of the award.

  6. Great quilt top! It is so fun! I love the pink and pomegranate colors together. I feel the same about trimming. I end up cutting off more than I am supposed to more than I'd like to admit!
