Lucky Star Quilt + Country Roads Fabrics

I've been slowly stitching away on this little project for about a month and it's been such a joy to work on.

I have a niece expecting her first baby soon so I'll be wrapping this up with a couple of favorite story books and sending it her way.  After working on a few larger projects, it's been nice to be able to work on a smaller baby quilt for a change.  

The pattern for this quilt is called Lucky Star and it's from my book, Fresh Fat Quarter Quilts.  Lucky Star uses just 6 fat quarters and it's pretty fast to make with just four large star blocks.

Don't forget to print this week's pattern sheet from the Fat Quarter Shop's blog here.

I love these star blocks.  I tried to use some of the bolder prints in these blocks so the white star points would stand out.  I love how scrappy they look!

Here's a photo of the full Shine Bright quilt from the book, Charming Baby Quilts.  Isn't it so fresh and lovely?  The Shine Bright quilt uses 3 charm packs and finishes at 56" x 56".

I decided to have a little fun with color this week and select only pink prints for the Just Blooming blocks, and green and blue prints for the On The Move blocks.  All of my fabrics are from charm packs of Gypsy Soul (by Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics)


As a reminder, at the end of our 6 week sew along, we'll have a throw-size sampler quilt to enjoy!
