To tell the truth about this quilt, I TOTALLY copied Amy and Heather up at the Cabin Fever Retreat. Those ladies are just SO AWESOME, I had to be just like them and make exactly what they were making too :)
While at Emily's Cabin Fever Retreat, I won 4 fat quarters in a game :) ...and Emily also had a basket of scraps just laying around for the taking :)
I mixed and matched and chose 8 prints for my AmyHeatherMarionCabinFeverRetreat Star. (Isn't that name perfect?)
Here is Heather's BEAUTIFUL star. She made hers out of a fq bundle she won at the retreat too :) She is blogging about her AmyHeatherMarionCabinFeverRetreat Star today too :) Head over and check it out HERE!!
The top came together at lightening speed :) The start pattern is from a tutorial over at In Color Order.
For the quilting I used a concentric circle tutorial by Blooming Poppies.
This is my sweet son all wrapped up in the the quilt. Oh the hazards of being the quilt model ;)
The back was inspired by Kati's awesome quilt backs. She was one of the wonderful quilters who entertained us with a trunk show at the retreat. She often uses left over fabric from the front to go on the back. The large white and green floral is from a batch of vintage fabric I got from April. It's perfect!!!
I am totally in love with the quilting. It was not hard to do, just tedious ;)
