I really, really love Sarah Jane's Out to Sea fabric line. It is probably one of my favorite collections ever. So when I was contemplating a quilt for my sister's new baby (due in April) this was the obvious choice.
A wonky star quilt like this has been on my to-make list for a while. Each of the little squares was three inches which created blocks that are 8" unfinished. I was very heavily inspired by these beautiful quilts: here and here.
My little assistant is sick and the weather outside was kind of yucky (cloudy + smoggy haze) so these pictures took quite a bit of bribery.
I had planned to use this pink map print for the entire backing but I didn't quite have enough. My daughter declared that she needs a pillow made out of this print so I guess it's a good thing I have some leftover :)
I am leaving next Tuesday to visit my family so I get to hand deliver this one. That leaves me entire week to work on my Maple Leaf Rag quilt and hopefully finish the quilt top before I leave. I am excited to pull it back out!
