It is always a fun day when I get to share a little secret sewing for my good friends at Moda Fabrics ;) And how great is this quilt in it's beautiful oranges and blues!!! These aren't colors I get to work with very often and it was just so great to get to sew up this quilt!!! The name of this quilt is Nova Star and the pattern is by Then Came June!!!
Like I said, these fabrics are just so happy!!! I just love all of the prints from this Meander Fabric Line by Aneela Hoey. There are great blenders of polka dots and gingham, and wonderfully whimsical prints with horses, foxes, and flowers. Just makes me want to get outside and enjoy the fresh air!!! And truly, I just love the colors!!! What a fun way to mix things up :)
The piecing in this quilt is a little on the small side, but oh so great :) You all now I love a great star quilt and this quilt the stars just explode!!! So great!!! I just love all of the movement it creates in the quilt and how the cornerstones create a wonderful secondary pinwheel design. It finishes at 54 x 68 so it is a great size to snuggle up in.
And when it came time to quilt it, I used one of my favorites. Echoed Paisley Quilting for the win. So relaxing to quilt and I just love all the added curved texture to such an pointy quilt!!! And good ol' 402 Pearl blended perfectly in all of these light and dark colors, it truly is my favorite!!
And this quilt is now making its way to quilt shops around the US. It is going to be a fun addition to add to my Cabin Quilts as soon as it gets home. I just think it fits the outdoors rustic feel just perfectly!!
But snuggling for me will have to wait until it makes it's way home. But you don't have to wait!!! Meander Fabrics are shipping now and Fat Quarter Shop has a Nova Star Meander Quilt Kit already available. And don't you just love the boxes the kits come in, so cute!!!
I am so happy that I got to make this beautiful Nova Star Quilt, it really was oh so much fun to make!! The Nova Star Pattern
was easy to follow and doesn't it just fit these fabrics so perfectly!!! I totally want to make a baby quilt version now, so adorable!!
And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!
