Fat Quarter Shop sells a pre-cut they call Jolly Bars. They are 10" by 5" cuts and come with a pattern for using them in a quick quilt. I also have the book with patterns for using them, and that's where I found this design. Since Confessions of a Fabric Addict is highlighting star quilts for her Hands2Help event this year, I chose this design and a Jolly Bar pack of Bunny Hill fabrics which I already had.
It did go together quickly, but the stars would show better with darker fabric.
When I quilt it I will work at making the stars stand out.
Without the border it was only 36.5" by 47.5" so I added the border to meet the charities' requirements.
This is this week's Solstice Block.
When I put all of my blocks together I see too much white, so I would like to have a dark or medium sashing when I put it all together. But that's a few months away.
Have a wonderful week. I'm coming down with a cold so curses to that little germ that settled in me.
