All Star Quilt Times Two!!

Note - Just in case you missed yesterday's post, I announced the new (free) Summer Solstice Quilt-A-Long that will be starting next week!!!  Be sure to check it out, we are going to have so much fun!!

So you might recall me sharing some simple patchwork a few weeks back, well . . . They are now finished quilts ;)    One has already been gifted to my sweet new nephew, and the other is just waiting for its little angel to arrive to be gifted :)  And I tell you what, I just loved this simple patchwork fun!!!  And it just looks so classic and fantastic!!

I made these little duo of quilts using my All Star quilt tutorial, and just opted to add an additional patchwork row instead of the applique row.  Then I added a quick border to frame up all of that wonderful patchwork ;)   The Patchwork fabric is Varsity by Sweetwater for Moda and the border is a print from Modern Neutrals by Amy Ellis for Moda ;)  They make a perfect pairing and both were busting stash, yippee!!

This All Star quilt I gifted to my sweet little nephew.  It is just the perfect size to snuggle him up in, and trust me, this little guy is a total snuggler.  So cute!!!

I quilted this All Star quilt with my all over firework design.  It is such a fun one to do and goes super fast.  I used a nice neutral light brown thread (cant remember the color name)  that blended well with all of the colors.  

And this All Star quilt is all tied up just waiting at the moment.  I had a layer cake of Varsity and cut it up into charms.  So I figured it just made sense to use more and make 2 quilts at the same time.  It really is just as fast and you get a bonus quilt when you are done ;)

I wanted to quilt this All Star quilt different but still wanted it to be "all boy" so I went back to one of the first free motion designed I learned.  All over loopies with stars.   You remember drawing these stars in 1st grade right ;)  It is a fun design to do and also goes really quick and I think really adds to the All Star design!

I had so much fun with these two little All Star Quilts and am so excited for the sweet little boys they are welcoming into the world ;)   And now that they are both claimed, I totally want to make more.  There really is just nothing quite like some simple patchwork!!!  So fun!!!!

Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting weekend!!
