I was hired to make a quilt for Christmas by my cousin Marta. She wanted something simple and patriotic for her parents. This quilt pattern Star Cakes is a perfect pattern. It is quick and easy, yet has a feel of a pattern vs just squares.
We decided on Prairie Paisley, one of my all time favorite lines. I think the colors fit her parents perfectly.
Quilted using a tanish Latte color which blended nicely with the fabrics, and popped a little on the cream. Used a quilted pattern called Frisky Feathers. I made it a bit larger.
Framed the whole quilt with a red tonal print, used a floral for the backing and a baby strip with stars for the binding. The combination came together well - and I had ever ounce of the fabric on hand. I love when that happens!
Here are my aunt and uncle enjoying their new quilt - hope it gets lots of use and love!
