On Wednesday I shared a picture of the pinwheel blocks I am making for one of the sports themed quilts I was asked to make. I’m happy to report that I have the top finished! Yay!! But. I finished it late in the evening and wasn’t able to get pictures. I will have to share it with you a bit later. Until then, here’s a look at a finished quilt I haven’t shown you yet.

I finished this baby quilt a couple of weeks ago but didn’t do a finish post because I was waiting for decent weather to get some good shots. Then I got busy, and forgot. So today I want to share with you this sweet little quilt!

Baby Quilt Sea Star Pattern

This is the Sea Star pattern I tested for Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs. I really like the colors I choose to use; they are so much fun. Fabric selection is a skill I’m still practicing and one I am not totally comfortable with yet. To have these pieces work so well together made me a very happy quilter!

Baby Quilt FMQ loops

I used an Aurifil variegated thread in the quilting with a big loopy design. I didn’t want to quilt it too heavily so it would stay cuddly and soft. The thread I used was #4659 and I am really pleased with how it looks.

Quilting detail

The backing is almost as cute as the front.  The 30’s print I found is as cute as can be. Look at those fun girls and boys!

Binding

The binding is a happy little polka dot that compliments all the colors and I think it is perfect.

And here’s another pic, just because….

Baby Quilt Sea Star Pattern

I love this little quilt and can definitely recommend the Sea Star pattern.  I hope you like it as much as I do if you try it.
