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 :)

All Star Rally Quilt and Tutorial!!
When it came time to quilt this, I decided on an all over wavy echoed paisley. Whenever I have lots and lots of sharp angles, it is always fun to add a curvy quilting design to it. Really adds to the movement of the quilt. Oh, and I have a free Video Tutorial of quilting this on your home machine, just fyi :)
The All Star Rally Quilt is made up of 16 Hunter Star Blocks and thanks to all of the precision cutting along with the notches for lining your pieces up, it really goes together fast!!! It measures 58" x 58" when it is finished so it is a great lap size quilt that is easy to take with you to the big game ;)
And that is my All Star Rally Quilt and Tutorial!!! And I hope you love it as much as I do ;) If you want to make your own All Star Rally Quilt just pop on over for the free step by step tutorial!!! And when you are done, I would love to see it!!! You can email me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc and #AccuQuilt ;) I can't wait to see your All Star Rally Quilts in your School Colors!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
