Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap Christmas Round

The sewing and voting is done, and this little quilt is well on it's way to it's new home! I really loved this little quilt, ok pillow, when I saw it and was dying to try it! Thus... my Christmas Stars mini.


I used Riley Blake's Holly Jolly collection. The backing is something I picked up a while ago, I don't know what it is. 


For the binding I used Rachel's Zigzag Binding tutorial at Stitched in Color. It was different from what I am used to doing, but I liked it! I think it gave it a fun finish.


I love how crisp this is. Too bad I quilted it. ;)

I thought it was kind of funny when I asked Neil what I should call it. He said, "Not Pinwheels". If you look at the white space they look like little pinwheels. It would be fun to do this design in a reverse pattern, making the stars white and the negative space different colors. Maybe I'll get around to trying it sometime. :)

If I remember right, it finished up 12.5" by 12.5".
I used this tutorial by Silly BooDilly for the stars. They are super easy and fun to make!
