Finishing Touches on My Scrappy Star

I’ve decided who I’m going to gift this scrappy little star quilt to so I thought I would get it ready to go to the long arm quilter. I have been toying with the idea of putting a border on it because it turned out just a little small. So I tried out some fabrics I had and landed on this gorgeous blue, red, fuchsia and orange batik. It’s such a gorgeous fabric and ties in with a lot of the scrappy batiks in the quilt.


It also ties in nicely with the dark blue and sunflower batik I bought for the back. I chose a bright yellow to be used for the binding. I love a binding with a nice pop of color!


Here’s a look at what the binding will look like.


I messaged my quilter a week or so ago and she is actually keeping quite busy during the shutdown. She has saved a slot for my two quilts. All I need to do now to have this one ready is to get the back pieced.


For the quilting design, I’m thinking of something floral and curvy, maybe with a golden thread. I have time to ruminate on it as this is planned for a holiday gift.

    1. Thanks Wanda! I had originally bought that border fabric for a binding, before I decided I wanted to add a border. It’s really a pretty piece of fabric… prettier all cut up, actually. I’m pretty happy with how it looks as a border.


    1. Thanks! This was literally made from all scraps. A friend of mine had made one for herself and gave me some of her scraps too. It really makes an interesting quilt when there are so many different fabrics.
