A special QuiltCon reject

I finally got the opportunity this week to photograph the beautiful wonky star quilt that was made last year at my first PMQG Charity Sew Day.

pmqg wonky star charity quiltI originally posted about making these blocks back in February last year and you can find the original post HERE.  I really loved the quilt top but extra love it now that Rachel at 2nd Avenue Studios wove her quilting magic.

Rachel free motion quilted these wonderful wandering lines that fill the scrappy white space fabulous while also highlighting parts of all the blocks.

…and around and through the stars.   The quilting perfectly compliments the scrappy wonky offset stars.

  1. Really beautiful quilt! I love the colours and the idea to use one colour for each star but with different Fabrics, is great! x Teje

  2. This is one of my favourites, stars and scrappy. It sure is nice to do charity quilts/blocks, I think I love doing it because I can try different patterns or styles that Id not normally do, win, win in my view 🙂

  3. This is so pretty! I love the tan and white background squares. Placing these squares in the random way you did is genius. What made you do this and how do I learn to do it?

    • Jennifer wonky stars are so fun and easy and a great block to use with people of different skill levels. It also is a great scrap buster. I have done 6 or 7 wonky stat quilts and can not remeber how i learnt to do it but i love them.
