When Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs put out the call for pattern testers for her newest patterns I was happy to volunteer. (I might have jumped up and down yelling Me, Me, Let Me!) I really enjoy Cheryl’s patterns; they are well written, easy to follow, and her most recent patterns Grand Scrappy Tiles and Sea Star are no exception.

This week I’m working on Sea Star, which is a combination of a plus block and star pattern. I went outside my comfort zone and pulled fabrics from my stash to use. I usually use bundles that someone else has pulled together, so this was good practice for me.Β  The pattern is fat quarter friendly and I have a lot of fat quarters! I ended up with several prints that were orange and yellow so that’s what I decided to use.

Plus Star Flimsy Block

I’m really pleased with the way the top looks. It is bright and happy and makes me feel good just looking at it. I think that makes a successful quilt, right? The blocks finish at 15″ so the top goes together quickly. I only needed nine blocks for the baby quilt I’m making.

I found the cutest 30’s print for the back. Just look at these puppies and kiddos!

Hopefully I’ll be able to get this quilted this week and have it finished before the weekend. Wish me luck!
