A month ago I signed up for round two of the Schnitzel & Boo Mini swap on IG.
My partners favorite colors are grey, coral, aqua and navy.
I have always wanted to make a Lone Star quilt, so I figured this would be a great time to try my hand at one ;-)
I used a strip piecing method I found on line.
The process was fun and pretty quick.
The colors play so well together.
The tricky part was trying to figure out how to attach the star to the back ground.
Eventually I figured it out by seeing how others had finished off paper pieced stars.
With every seam, I got more excited!
Because of the need to press seams in specific direction to get perfect points, I had to label my sections.
Doesn't it look cool!?!
My center points even are pretty darn good.
I quilted with straight lines, matching to star pattern.
The back looks pretty awesome!
For the binding, I used a little Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camile.
Here it is al finished :-)
I added corner hanging things...you know, for hanging ;-)
Since my printer ate the label I designed, I decided to do an epp label, of course!
Embroidery is not my thing, so I just wrote it all :-)
Being the over zealous girls that I am, I decided my partner needed a matching zippered pouch :-)
I used left over fabric from the mini.
...and a grey dotted ribbon for a pull.
And because I can't leave well enough alone, I made this cute little pincushion too!
It measures 3" square. The patchwork is made up of 1/2" squares ;-)
