This is going to be a crib quilt for a dear friend of mine who's just given birth to a beautiful baby girl.
I couldn't get enough of this block, having recently made a table runner using the same one (see post below). I have used scraps of Michael Miller, Denyse Schmidt and Liberty fabrics, with some Moda solid pink thrown in there for good measure.
It needs a border, because it's only a wee quilt top so far. I just kept making blocks until I ran out of scraps and this is what I ended up with.
There is one problem, however....
I am thinking that I will need to get a long-arm quilter to quilt in the ditch along these really bulky seams, so I can then go ahead and do my hand quilting inside the white stars. There is no way my little Janome could handle these seams! It could barely manage piecing them together! I am hoping quilting in the ditch will help flatten it out a little.
Any other suggestions?
