The shape of the stars in this quilt strike me as a little bit retro, almost like they would look right at home on the side of a 1950's kitchen appliance. As neat as the blocks look on their own, I just love all of the cool secondary shapes created whey they're all together.
I pieced the back with scraps, and used a solid rich shade of plum for the binding. When I pulled fabric for this quilt, I specifically chose colors that were getting a little heavy in my stash. Pink is not a color I reach for often, especially the shade of bubble gum pink in this quilt, but the deeper plum, teal, and aqua balance it out nicely. It's definitely a feminine palette, but not overly sweet.
I'm working on the pattern for this one. I'm hoping to have it finished up by this weekend, so be on the lookout! It's definitely a fun one, and the blocks are pretty large, which helps the quilt go together in a flash. This is the lap size, and it finishes at 60" square.
