Quilt – Star Spangled Stars

In honour of Mother’s Day this past weekend, I figured I would share the quilt I made for my mother-in-law down in Texas!

Monkey bars are a such a great way to hold quilts for photos. 

Fabric: Star Spangled by Doodlebug Designs for Riley Blake fabrics
Pattern: Sawtooth Star tutorial by Honey Bear Lane
Started: Summer 2015 (?); Finished: Summer 2016

Note to self: a bright red backing on a mostly white quilt was probably a very bad idea. 

For such a simple quilt, this one took me FOREVER to finish.  That’s the downside of using tutorials instead of patterns – no fabric or cutting requirements means a lot of guesswork for supplies.  Regardless of how long it took, I managed to finish it… and I’m quite proud of how it turned out!
