Just popping in to share a little baby quilt that I just had to make.  I wanted some pretty stars to quilt and I had: 
  1. A sweet little charm pack of Kona cottons in a "Sunrise" colorstory...
  2. Yardage of a fun and colourful print called "Birds of Norway" by Michael Miller which seemed to pick out lots of the shades in my little charm pack...
  3. Just enough Kona Oyster solid...
  4. And a drawerful of colourful perle and Aurifil threads to play with.

I used a tutorial found here but I did have to do some reducing as it calls for 5.5" squares as the centres of the stars and I used a 5" charm pack.  But it was very easy and this block is very forgiving as your points "float" and probably won't get cut off when you sew it to the other blocks, unless you do something very weird.

Then, as you can see, I hand quilted around each star and then machine quilted around each star.  I bound it with Kona Cerise (cut to 2" - my new normal) and it was done!
