This is one of my favorite quilts — mainly because of the money it raised for a very good cause. I made it in 2004 or 2005 as part of the Moda Challenge and the quilt is no longer in my possession. You can read about it in this post, and this one.
I’m not happy with the border and I wasn’t real happy with the border when I made it. I’m going to make another one and, the good news is, quite a few of you requested directions for this quilt when I first showed is so I’m going to share directions with you, up to the border. I still don’t have a border in mind but I’ll come up with something for my quilt.
This is going to be kind of a quilt along project and it will start Wednesday, June 30. The instructions will stay on the blog, you can do it at your own speed. More info will be posted later about this project but for now, if you want to participate, begin digging out whatever fabrics you want to use. Here’s a very rough estimate of what you will need. This is not counting any borders!
Fussy cut stars – 14 – 3-1/2″ squares
Cream – 1-3/4 yards
Tan – 1-1/4 yards
Red – 2 yards
Blue – 1/2 yard
Of course, you could use fussy cut flowers and spring colors or a 3-1/2″ embroidered square and anything that matches. It’s your quilt . . do what makes you happy!
