Pop Star for Keeps

Happy Monday!  I hope all of you mommas out there had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend!  I had a packed weekend, and part of it included finishing up this Pop Star quilt (pattern available HERE and HERE).  With 18 inch blocks, this one went together pretty quickly.

Little by little, I've been remaking several of my quilts to use as class samples, so this one is for keeps.  I decided to use a navy background on this one to give it a little wow factor, and I love how the colors just pop against it.  I'm still deciding how I want to quilt it. but since we are smack in the middle of our end of season baseball tournament, this one may have to wait a little while until I can finish it anyway.  We practically live at the ball field at this time of year, and I love it!


  1. It is very pretty and has a great pop with the navy background!

  2. i love this quilt. especially with the navy background. i love how the flowers pop. they are so happy and fun. you did a wonderful job.

  3. How fun and playful! I like the use of the navy blue for the sashing.

  4. Another wonderful finish! The navy background is a real winner!!

  5. Fabulous quilt.Love your fabric combo!

  6. Kelly, I love how the stars pop against the navy background! I have a deep plum in my stash that has been waiting for the right project. This just might be it! I'll look forward to seeing your quilting decision. This design could work well with a motif that enhances the stars/flowers feel, perhaps with a secondary play in the background/sashing. Wishing good play for the tournament team! Thanks as always for sharing and for inspiration. (janeherbst at roadrunner dot com)

  7. Kelly, I used your pattern with mens' memory shirts with a cream background. I am thinking about adding sashing in between and corner stones and borders, but haven't found the right color for the sashing. The shirts are such varied colors. Have you tried sashing with this pattern or do you think it would take away from the overall look of the quilt. Thanks!

    1. ooh! that sounds pretty! Yes, I think it would look fine with sashing and cornerstones, but if it were me, I would stick with sashing that is the same color as the background to keep the stars "floating."
