Starlight Star Bright

On my design wall today:  my Starlight Star Bright baby quilt.  I loved playing with these bright fabrics.  I think I could have chosen a slightly lighter color for the blue stars, but overall I’m happy with how this turned out.

Figuring out what size prairie point to insert after the inner border took a bit of trial and error.  The original size I planned was way too large and floppy.  The next size was too small.  What you see here was something in between and think adds just enough dimension and color.

This needs to be quilted this week.  The finished top has been waiting on the design wall for over a week as I waited for the quilt to speak up and tell me what to quilt on it. In the end I think it will be simple outline quilting inside and outside the stars, and a simple cable in the outer border.  The prairie points will remain unquilted so they stay dimensional.  Perhaps some alphabet in the stars, if I don’t run out of time and patience!

  1. Hello from Colorado - I came over from Kate's blog. I am in love with this awesome baby quilt. :) Fun brightness, and I've been wanting to do prairie points for a long time and just haven't gotten to a project that wants them yet. I missed out on the latest Quilt Festival because of our daughter's college graduation and my thesis work, but I saw your two entries below this post, and they are terrific as well. Love your quilting on the stars, and the colors/layout of the flying geese quilt really call to me.

  8. Fabulous colours and I think the blue works well. Prairie points give me the heebee jeebees. If it was up to me to choose the quilt design you'd be waiting a lot longer than seven days!

  11. What a happy quilt! So good for a baby to gaze at. :-) I think the blue is just fine. At my guild meeting Tuesday night, they did several rulers demos, and there was a really cool thin metal ruler for creating prairie points: Pieces be With You by Susan K Cleveland. Have you seen it? Might have helped me on all the prairie points on Seaside Rose!! Looking forward to seeing this quilted, love the alphabet idea.
