I absolutely love Stars and they just keep reappearing in my quilting! A very special and dear friend had a big birthday recently and I wanted to make her a quilt! I settled on the Giant Star using the fabulous tutorial provided by Jenni Baker @ In Color Order. I absolutely love this quilt and the softness of the colours!
I ask my friend to give me a little colour inspiration to help me select the fabrics! So she supplied me with the following photo of a hand painted ceiling of a Gaudi Building in Barcelona, Spain where she had visited earlier this year.
This photo was the bases of the colour/fabric selection for this quilt! I settled for a little blue Liberty with a few modern prints such as a yellow Sketch, grey/coral Minimalista and a few spots! The background fabric was a very light Beige cotton/linen blend! As for the binding it has to be one of my all time favorite fabrics. The colours in the binding are awesome – Black, Blue, Grey, Lime Green and White. Who would have thought that such a small print could hold all these colours and it fits beautifully with the fabrics in the Star and the green numerical backing fabric.
I had the quilt longarm quilted with swirls on the background fabric and straight lines to emphasize the Star points! I am absolutely delighted with the quilting and I think my longarm quilting friend did an amazing job!! For the backing fabric I chose a beautiful numerical print in a lime green! The numbers are outlined with a deep blue which fits nicely with the colour scheme!
I really hope my beautiful friend likes it. I just want to wrap her up in Love!!!
