Welcome to Day 4 of the Fat Quarter Baby Blog Tour. Glad you stopped by and welcome to my blog! You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram at Planted Seed Designs. Follow me there for daily inspiration and sneak peaks!
Being passionate about stars in quilts, I was naturally attracted to Kristen. But I couldn’t contain myself with just making 5 stars; I went for 9! Did I create a dilemma for myself by changing the course of the design? I don’t think so, but I’ll let you decide . . . . .
I went for a simple straight block setting adding the sashing strips and 9 patch posts; keeping the quilt square allowing you to lay it or hang it on point, like the original.
Kristen is perfect for the confident beginner who wants to learn a new and interesting way to make a star block; the construction is NON-traditional, fascinating and interesting. You may find yourself making more than 5 blocks too!
Oh I wish I could say I stopped at Kristen, but she was just the beginning of my obsession with Fat Quarter Baby book! Look what else I was able to sew up in time for today’s blog hop . . . . . . . . .
Quack, Quack – it’s CHRISTOPHER and all his unique friends in their designer inspired duds!
Again, I couldn’t help myself. Fat Quarter Baby brings out the inner child in me. Am I stopping there? No way! I have a couple more ideas swirling around that I’ll be getting to right after the Thanksgiving holidays. Interested in knowing what it will be? Want to join in on the fun – a sew along or a row along or a sampler? If so, let me know in the comments below.
