I loved making this quilt, despite my love / hate relationship with the very teeny tiny stars for the last couple of blocks. It all started last summer. Pixie Summer Home Quilt-A-Long.
The cloud like quilting creates a beautiful look around the houses with just enough depth to stand out from the trees and houses.
The Farmhouse fabric, by Fig Tree (Joanna Febueroa for Moda) was a perfect choice for this quilt. Colorful, playful and neighborhoody!
See those stars…the smallest is an inch, plus or minus a fraction. Small = harder to work with than I thought they would be. I persevered (I even started an ender / leader project now making small stars from leftover triangles from other projects – yes, really I did).
A blustery windy day (where a cloud rolled behind me just as I started to take pictures) made for a natural look at the back of the quilt.
These red berried trees are a natural fit for the backing. Kind of like a tree farm in the backyard, if you know what I mean.
The quilt finished at roughly 51 x 63. I can see this pattern modified as a table runner, wall hanging or even a set of placemats. I can’t wait to use it again.
