With a few hours sewing time over the weekend, I assembled my 16 “Four Point Star” blocks into a baby quilt for my soon-expected grand niece. Her mama gives a thumbs-up, so I’ll begin quilting it soon.
The fabric line is Flower Mill designed by Corey Yoder for Moda. Although there are several other colors of fabrics in the line, my niece asked me to focus on mint green, pink, and gold. I used 8 fat quarters: 4 green and 4 pink. Gold flowers in the border fulfill the third color requirement. The quilt measures 52″ square with 8″ blocks, 2″ sashing and first border, and 5″ outer border.
Being a traditional quilter, I generally use a darker fabric for the sashing, but in this case, I thought the light floral would lend an airy, feminine feel. What do you think? Have you made a quilt with light sashing? Were you pleased with the results?
