This was a really fun challenge for me. My partner for Doll Quilt Swap 10 likes modern fabric used in traditional designs. I'd never done a true traditional quilt pattern before, so I was excited to try it. I got a Quilt Block-A-Day calendar for Christmas, so I poked through there and found a star pattern I liked. The pattern called for smaller squares to make a small block, but I used charm squares to make it wall-hanging size. It finished up at about 24" square after I put the border on.
I'm really happy with how it turned out and I have quite a crush on half-square triangles now! They're so versatile!
I also used a walking foot for the first time to quilt it. I am in LOVE with that thing and cannot wait until I get a proper machine so I can invest in one of my very own. For now I have to wait anxiously for time in the sewing classroom to use the machines there! This won't go in the mail until March 15th, and I still want to put together a few extras to go with it. Hope you like it, partner!
