Well I did, and I am just head over heels about it!!! I wanted to use all of the prints so I decided to use the star pattern that I used for this block tutorial, I just used solid pieces of fabric instead of scrappy ones and scaled the size down just a bit. I alternated the darker prints and the lighter prints to really make each blade of the star stand out.
Then to finish the quilt, I added a 1" white border around the star block, added a scrappy tile row to the top and bottom for length, and then one more 1" white border to the top and bottom. I even had a little bit of the binding left from my daughter's Star quilt, so I used that to bind it.
Then I quilted the the background in the same echoed paisley design (see video tutorial here) that I did on the stars quilt but just did it in a micro size. Isn't it just so stinking cute. I love small stitching and I finished at about the same time I was starting to regret doing it so small. That's such a perk of small quilts :)
So that's the last minute Christmas gift checked off :) Yippee Skippee!!!
But you know I couldn't leave it at that, tee hee hee. I am totally inspired. With this cute new modern quilt the doll needs a cute little modern outfit. And I talked to my MIL and she agreed to guide me along the way. So sewing today will be tackling one of these. Wish me luck!!
