hey ma, lookee what i made!

i recently pieced this quilt using the fabric line city weekend from a free pattern that i found on-line here. I'm happy with the springy, fresh look these fabrics gave to this easy quilt. i used ice frappe in kona cotton for the stars and sashing. (if you've not had the chance to use this fabric, run right out and get you some. really. it's that great!) I've been inspired lately by quilts here and here, and solids seem to be the way to go...

it was fun and easy, and i might try it again using some of the moda's bistro charm packs., with chocolate colored stars.

if stefanie sent you here from little lady patchwork, thanks for visiting! if you're interested in another free quilt pattern, (block-o-the-month style) you can go see it here. it's a calendar quilt that i designed, with only one block to piece a month. be sure to zip on over and check it out for all the details!

Thank you so much for sharing your version of Charming Stars with me! I love what you did with the borders. Are those extra charm squares?

I will post a link to your blog later on this week (probably on Thursday). I want everyone to see your lovely version!

Great job,

stefanie- thanks for stopping by! yes, those are extra charm squares. acutally, i started with a layer cake, and just cut it up into 4 charm packs. i have 11 charms left, which i'll use in the backing.
