Do you have an extra quilt charm pack that you don’t know what to do with? Here is a sweet little Twirling Stars baby quilt that would be perfect to make!
You could make a fast and easy baby quilt with one charm pack and a background fabric. The neat thing about this quilt is you don’t have to piece the pinwheel blocks!
Twirling Stars Baby Quilt
You simply cut the pieces from the charm squares and then stitch them to the background quilt block. Easy Peasey!
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 took a close-up 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.
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 also used a striped fabric that I bought a couple of years ago for the binding.
I also made a fast and easy mini table topper with the same quilt fabrics that I think you’ll like.
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 of 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 of 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 squares in half so you have 2 – 2 ½-inch x 5-inch pieces.
Place one 2½-inch x 5-inch piece on top of the other. Line up your ruler on the 2 ½-inch center and cut diagonally to each corner. You will have one large piece and two small pieces.
Then all you do is lay the pieces on your 6 ½-inch squares and stitch them down. You will have raw edges.
Each block gets one large triangle and one small one. Make four blocks for each quilt block.
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!
