I started this quilt about three years ago. It ended up in the UFO box because I couldn’t decide on border fabric.
The quilt isn’t faded at the corner the way it looks. The sun and the wind were playing with me making it hard to get a photo.
The star blocks are all 100% cotton recycled shirts. The rest of the quilt top is store bought fabric. The pattern is Hand Me Downs from Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. The pattern uses a more of a gold rather than a yellow fabric but my star blocks were more yellow than gold so I went with yellow. My daughter Kelli thought it would be a mistake but I went with it anyway. In the end, we both like it.
I used a recycled sheet for the backing but the sheet was a little narrow so I add some more star blocks along with more yellow fabric.
I used a black and white variegated thread for the back and the front was a brown variegated thread. The quilting pattern is a Pajama Quilter pattern that I think was called floral stipple. I loved it and it was really, really easy to figure out. I was looking for a way to break out of a stipple rut, the Pajama Quilter’s things are just what I needed.
