Blogger's Fall Quilt Festival

I made this Exquisite Star Quilt for my godson, who was born last month.

It's a version of the Shooting Star, inspired by Gwen Marston.

The finished block size is 3", and I made it from my scraps. There are 14 rows of 12 blocks each.

You can click the photos to enlarge.

Lovely quilt - isn't amazing how many beautiful quilts get made with the smallest bits of fabric-
Your quilt reminds me of a stretched star pattern.
I am sure that it is going to become a treasured quilt for its owner.
Have fun viewing the show.

Anna
