Bloggers’ Quilt Festival–ROYGBIV

Fall Blogger’s Quilt Festival time is here again. This time I am featuring my Jelly Bean Stars quilt, entering it in the ROYGBIV category.   If you have been reading my blog for a while you have seen this one before. If you are visiting for the first time, welcome.

Jelly Bean Stars

This is one of my favourites.  I love the colours.  I love the pieced sashing.  I love that I designed it so that I didn’t have to cut triangles and I couldn’t possibly cut off any points.  I love that I used up little bitty bits of scraps for the string centers.  I love the quilting in the borders, straddling the two different borders with a single motif.  I don’t love that I don’t have it anymore, but I do love the friend it went to, so it’s OK.

This is also the quilt that started me thinking about writing quilt patterns.  It isn’t the first one I wrote up, but it is the one that made me think I should try.  I did write a pattern for Jelly Bean Stars this summer and it is available in my Craftsy shop Payhip store (updated 12 January, 2015)

Thank you Amy for organizing and hosting the festival again.
