And it is finished!

34″ x 38″
I especially love that I still had some of the fabric I used in my grandson’s, newborn quilt, in 2002, to use as the backing. It is a hefty, super soft, quilting fabric!
I had no pattern or plan when I started this one. I knew I wanted to do irregular stars, but didn’t bother to do any math, before I started. If I had of, I would probably have made the stars in sizes that added up. You know 3″, 6″, 9″s where you could stack the blocks and make them logically fit together. But no. I made a stack of random star blocks, laid them out on the piece of backing I had on hand, then using my ruler, added bits and pieces to make it all add up to a squared up quilt.
Funny how often I find myself doing this exact thing. Especially here lately. As opposed to slowing down my mind and just doing the math. Maybe even writing it down for future reference. And if I did that, I’d know the precise dimensions of this one.
Using your imagination you can see that the small, navy star is sparkly and glittery. There are a few others, in different colors scattered about. I thought it really made it Twinkle!
I hate that so often I don’t get to deliver quilts in person and this is another example of that. I sure hope our great-nephew Braden is enjoying his tummy time on it!!
Have a great weekend!

Fabulous! I love the wonky yellow stars on the dark blue background…very twinkly.
Love love love! Such a fab quilt!
Ooh, it’s really lovely. I’m sure new baby and parents are enjoying every minute!
It’ s a beautiful quilt to wrap Braden in!
I love star quilts, especially irregular ones. It’s probably a lot of work to make them come together, but they always look so sharp! Yours is wonderful!
