Rural Jardin Stars Done!
I finished binding this last night with Kona Cotton Solid in China Red. Washed it up and dried it this morning and convinced my biggest boy to come out and photograph it with me!
The pattern is of my own design, using a pattern for a sawtooth star. I made the pinwheels with my scraps from the sawtooth stars. I used up a jelly roll and most of a charm pack, plus about half a yard of the blue yardage from the same line. All these fabrics but the binding come from Moda's designers French General and their line Rural Jardin. Completed size is 70 inches by 70 inches.
This quilt is going to my friend this Friday when I visit her for the weekend. When I told her I wanted to make her a quilt and showed her some pictures in a few pattern books I had, she asked for a traditional quilt that will stand the test of time in deep blues and reds. Hope this fits the bill!
