I really enjoyed the quilt making. And now I'm ready to make a quilt for my house. For some reason I've been obsessed with making something stars and stripes for the 4th of July. Since everything at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe is BEAUTIFUL, I like to go there often to admire the quilts. There's something so comforting about a stack of warm quilts. I've always wanted that in my house like a Shabby Chic commercial. I bought one at an antique shop for way too much money. Time to figure out how to make my own.
I recently got up the nerve to buy a kit. But, it's a Christmas quilt and that's so far away. I thought I would go for the 4th of July first. And I've been loving the picture of a star quilt I've seen at HH. You can find it on their blog Boughs of Holly. You can see it in the background! I love the plaid and other prints layered in- very Ralph Lauren.
|Summertime Stars Quilt Pattern|
Last time I was there, I asked one of the ladies if they were making a kit for the stars quilt. And, alas, the answer was currently, NO. However, she found the pattern for me and showed me how cool the cutting instructions were and how easy and fast to piece that is would be. She said she made it and it was super easy. BINGO! My second quilt.
Parting shot..... Mochi asking for tummy rub. Ok, that's an old photo but he still does that all the time.
