Today I will be linking up with Lily's Quilts 'Fresh Sewing Day'.
Earlier this year the lovely Rachael Daisy of Blue Mountain Daisy blog made an absolutely stunning wonky star doll quilt. We were taking part in the Doll Quilt Swap at the time and this wasn't even the one for her partner but an extra one she made out of left-overs! Here is a link to this inspirational quilt.
I totally lusted after this quilt and put it on my to-do list. I planned to make it for the first Brit Quilt Swap but got side tracked by a kaleidoscope design.
Once I had all the blocks complete, I added some 'filler' panels to square it up and make it even more random.
Here is the finished top.
I quilted around the stars with contrasting perle 8 (such a pleasurable way to quilt something small!).
And then there was so much going on that the pink flowery panel (Michael Miller's 'Peacock Lane') looked a bit empty. And I don't need much of an excuse to get my button tin out!
The back is just a plain solid, but it does show off the quilting nicely.
And all finished on Monday! My friends's birthday is not for another week so I have some time to enjoy it at home.
