Wonky Stars Quilt

A few weeks ago I went to a baby shower for a friend who's having her first little girl next month.  When she had her boy a few years ago she and I were only really acquaintances, so I didn't make a quilt for him, but now that she and I are friends I had promised her a quilt for her girl.

I picked up an awesome fabric stack from Fresh Modern Fabric on Etsy a few months ago with the intention of getting the quilt made way in advance of the shower.  Well, fast forward to two weeks before the shower and that's when I actually started the quilt.

Since I was working full time I knew it would be a crunch for me to get the quilt done all by myself, so I enlisted the help of my good friend Rebeckah to tag team this one.  I had already decided to do stars since I seem to be obsessed with them recently, and one evening over at Rebeckah's house we sat down to wine and a movie and figured out all the dimensions and cut our fabric.

We split the fabric and each made half of the wonky stars.  I then pieces them all together into a quilt top and quilted and bound the whole thing.

It was done just in time for the shower and turned out to be super wonderful (if I can say so myself).  I think this is one of my favorites so far.
