Stars Abound

I recently had the chance to make the most adorable little quilt.  The mom sent me this photo and wanted a toddler-sized quilt just like it:

Photo from here  (I love this little bed – especially the sock monkey!)

And here’s my version:

The finished quilt measured 44 x 58 (before washing)

It’s machine quilted in navy – a basic meandering pattern with a few little loopies mixed in – one of my favorites.

The backing is this sweet little flower print from Henry Glass (Cottage Shirtings designed by Little Quilts for Henry Glass & Co.).  It’s SO wonderfully soft!

The binding is the same light blue that’s used on the quilt front.  I love how it turned out!

Soon after completing this quilt, I spotted this photo on Pinterest:

Isn't it just sweet?  I think now I’m going to have to use my same pattern and create a ‘Stars Abound’ quilt with some fun brights and a white background!  [Photo from here]

  4. Thanks all! Yes, a pattern is in the works. I'll have two versions - one toddler/crib size and one that is a throw size. They'll have the same amount of stars, but arranged differently
