Big Star – Judy’s Stash Project 2009

This project was started on Judy’s blog as a Stash project and finished yesterday.

At the beginning, I went gangbusters working on this until I got the top mostly finished in May of 2009 and there it sat for the next 3 years.

The colored fabrics are all pretty much the same and are from Jo-Ann’s. The cream is actually a sheet from IKEA.

I pieced together the backing from four different pieces of blue in my stash. The binding is the pink that matches the pink in the blocks. The batting is Warm and Natural that was pieced together from some large leftover pieces.

I quilted it with my favorite all over large meander. I love the texture it gives quilts.

The finished quilt is 64″ square. A good lap-size quilt. Judy’s version of the quilt has several more borders making it a bit too large for me.

4/19/2009 – Started making the blocks.
5/23/2009 – Finished the top center.
9/1/2012 – Final border added. Made the binding.
11/21/2012 – Made the backing. Sandwiched the top.
1/26/2013 – Quilted with all over meander.
1/27/2013 – Bound by machine.

Some progress posts:


    • It was an experiment after reading about it on someone’s blog. I’m not sure I’d do it again though. The one I got was a bit thin. But it’s okay for this scrappy quilt. I just wouldn’t use it for a gift or an heirloom. 🙂
