If there was ever a year to wish on a falling star….this would be it!
Wish is my newest pattern, and it might just top the list as my brightest quilt yet.
When planning out this quilt I started with a dark background and moody golds and yellows…but then I saw these True Color fabrics by Tula Pink and dropped everything! They are saturated and whimsical…perfect for shooting stars.
This quilt can be made with all fat quarters, or you can use a jelly roll for the star tails and fat quarters for the star. One jelly roll + 4 fat quarters and a background will make a Throw size.
This quilt would be great for a beginner with some experience piecing angled seams. The blocks are big, and only 15 blocks make up the throw size.
Of course I also used Diagonal Seam Tape which makes these blocks a billion times (or so) faster to sew.
I used my favorite white as the background, Bella Solids 9900-200 Off White (it’s not really off white…I’d call it more a creamy white in person).
I sent this quilt to Knot and Thread Design so she could quilt it with a shooting star design.
It’s hard to see in a photo but it’s perfect!
Wouldn’t this quilt be perfect for a teenage girl? I don’t think it’s too “young” looking…but then again I haven’t been a teenager for a very long time!
Here’s a mockup of a night sky version I was planning…I love it even more with a dark background and lots of pretty golds.
I’m finishing up a Christmas version of this pattern I’ll share next week, it’s SO GOOD!!
