I am so thrilled to be sharing my newest finish today and to also be sharing a new AccuQuilt Tutorial for it as well. And it is perfect for Back to School!! Here is my All Star Rally Quilt!! If you have been around her for a bit, you know I love to make School Spirit quilts for my Alma Mater, Southern Utah University, and as soon as I saw the Hunter Star BOB die from AccuQuilt, I knew it would be just perfect for a rally quilt of All Star proportions!!The quilt is made with yardage from 3 Solid Colors making it easy to represent your favorite school colors!!! I added some fun sashing to Hunter Star block to add a secondary star that really makes this quilt next level. I love taking a traditional block and giving it a fun twist!! It makes for such a great finish :)

I am so very excited to share my finished State Fair Quilt and the State Fair Quilt PDF Pattern with it!!!! A few weeks ago, my friends at Fave Quilts asked if I would be willing to share a fast finish with them for their new Quick & Easy Quilt Club Newsletter. It is for Beginners and experienced quilters alike and is a free newsletter featuring pre-cut patterns, quick patterns, and more! And since I have been so loving working with Charm Packs . . . I did a super fun and super quick Charm Pack pattern. And here it is, State Fair!!
This quilt is made with a simple big block that uses Half Square Triangles. The Half Square Triangles are made using a charm square so the only cutting you have to do from the start is the Background Fabric. So great!!! And don't you just love all of the movement, it is just like pennants dancing in the wind, which we always have at our State Fair, hence the name :)
I choose to use 2 Charm Packs of Bonnie and Camille's new One Fine Day fabrics that come out in November . I just love how happy and bright they are, just makes for the perfect picnic quilt!! And what really adds to the picnic feel is the Royal Chambray background fabric. It almost looks like denim but sews much easier than denim and makes all of those happy bright prints just pop!!!
When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over Open Centered Swirl in varied sizes. I quilted on a slightly larger scale than I usually do so it went really fast and was oh so much fun to quilt. I used a nice denim color So Fine thread so it blended perfectly into the background and still blended great on the darker prints. Have I mentioned how much I love So Fine for blending ;)
