A Star Panel with my Daisy Fabrics

 All my daisy fabrics... how do you choose?


Maybe blue?


Yes to yellow!


More yellow.





And I love the blue fabric too!


Peel off the heat and bond paper.



Press/ iron the panel unto white fabric. I adhered it to white fabric as I changed my mind on chopping up the star. I was going to chop and scatter on fabric and press them in place and then quilt.  Going in another direction means I need a backing on the panel.


Where should I cut?


I think right in the center --- I can cut four sections there.



I started cutting, but I did not cut each piece exactly the same, but kind of close to the same section for each one. 






Where should I cut the next pieces?






I cut the pieces right into the border.






I think I can get a small piece from the last sections.



Now I have 16 blocks. I love the blocks with the yellow fabrics!


I randomly stitched yellow fabric strips on all four sides of each block.
The strips were all 1 1/4 inch.



I put the quilt blocks together like I constructed my Denim Quilt Block, but for this quilt I used strips all the same size. The PDF Downloadable Pattern for the Denim Quilt Block is only $1.00 at Craftsy.com 
Here is the direct link: Click Here.


I had to add more strips to the smaller blocks on the corners.


I like it, but I had laid it out on the blue fabric and then another idea came to me.


I should add blue border strips!



So I did! I like it!


It is ready to quilt.


I selected to quilt it somewhat traditionally with a small meandering and lazy daisies.  It's my favorite quilting next to thread painting.


I embroidery stitched a blue floral print on for the binding.

I placed it on my dining room table with some of my blue dishes and glasses.


I flipped it over so you can see the backside.


And the corner where I stitched my name and you can see the embroidery stitched binding, up close.


My Star Daisy Quilt is ready for my table and ready to link up for the Off Season Project Quilting June Challenge. Click Here for the link to that post where all the quilt projects are linked up there.

Enjoy!

Wow, that is so cool. When you showed the first cut I wondered what on earth you were doing. In the end it turned out just gorgeous.

Your quilt turned out so darn cute. But...let me tell you...I was nearly sick to my stomach as I watched you cut apart that gorgeous star and thought of all the patchwork in it. I really don't think I could have had the guts to do it.
