One thing I did manage to work on slowly over the past month was a Wonky Stars Quilt.
My inspiration for this quilt was a gorgeous quilt I found on flickr created by Amy (Drury Girl).
Amy's (Drury Girl) gorgeous wonky star quilt that she designed.
The colours she has used here are mouthwatering!

I loved Amy's layout for these stars and decided to make mine like that too. I had fallen completely in love with the feedsack inspired Blue Hill Fabric with its retro looking red, pink, green and white flowers all over it and had such fun using this as the background fabric for the stars.
For the stars I wanted to continue a bit of a retro look and found Denyse Schmidts Flea Market Fancy plus some of her new Spotlight (Joannes) fabric worked a treat as always. Is there anything that FMF doesn't work with? Other fabrics used are the always versatile Japanese Kei dots and some Michael Miller dots as well as some solids and other fabrics.
The stars are wonky because they are sewn using the liberated method.
I took a few photo's to show how they are done, I will show them in the next week or so.
Recently we spent some time with friends down at Philip Island. These photo's were taken on the horse round yard on the property, the grey timber of the yard looks fabulous with the colourful stars. Kenny the racehorse wanted to make sure he starred in the photo's as well.
He is such a handsome fellow.
I'm thrilled with this little quilt and need to think about how I will quilt it. I will bind it using a black of some sort probably.
Have you made any wonky star quilts? xo
