Twirling Stars Baby Quilt
I finished my UFO for this month, it was another easy one – just a Twirling Stars baby quilt. I have a feeling next month I won’t be so lucky! Are you finishing up your UFOs that have been sitting around? It really is a good feeling!
The quilt is 36″ x 40″ which is a perfect size for a baby. Our weather has been unbelievable for February and I was able to take photos down along the river……no ice!
I had this cute flannel in my stash which has little kitties on it, this will make a sweet quilt for a little girl. I used a striped fabric that I bought a couple years ago.
I took a closeup photo of the back and a block before I put the binding on. You can see the twirling stars a little better. The stars are raw bias-edge pieces.
Now that I have taken all of my photos by the river it will be time to wash and dry my quilt.
When I showed you this UFO at the beginning of the month I shared the info and a link to the video tutorial for this quilt. The quilt is called Delainey’s Twirls & Swirls Quilt and Jenny of Missouri Star Quilt Co. makes a 74″ x 97″ quilt using just one charm pack and 2 yards of fabric for the 6 1/2″ background squares. Here is the video tutorial for the Delainey’s Twirls & Swirls Quilt.
I had a couple people ask about the way the blocks were made as they have a hard time watching videos (that is also me sometimes) so I thought I would share a couple photos. Each 5 inch charm square is cut the same way, you end up with 2 large and 4 small sections. The video shows 2 different ways to cut them.
I like cutting the charm square in half so you have 2 – 2 ½” x 5″ pieces.Place one piece on top if the other and line up your ruler on the 2 ½” center and cut.
Then all you do is lay the pieces on 6 ½” squares and stitch them down. You will have raw edges.
