This quilt came out a little brighter which I wasn’t expecting, but I love it anyway. It was a custom quilt order, so I’m not getting to keep it. I probably wouldn’t have used all solids again for my stars, but it was requested. I’m just a print girl, ya know?! Anyway, they do have a certain graphic look and quilting looks absolutely wonderful on top of a solid, so I do like and enjoy solids.
The Star Dance pattern is one of my favorites. I’ve always loved the Friendship Star block, and this one is that block with just the corners changed. When you put all the blocks together, you get this cool connected look (the low volume), and it kinda looks like either light is coming from the stars or they are moving or dancing. Or, that’s what I see. What do you see? Sometimes I think it looks like the stars are sashaying.
You can find the quilt pattern for this quilt here. It’s free by the way! It doesn’t go into details about how to make the half square triangles, because it was a quilt along as I mentioned and I did that in one of the posts, but it does have a video tutorial within the pattern that can be helpful if you are a new quilter.
One thing I like about this quilt is that it uses all fat quarters. I haven’t always found fat quarters useful, but lately I’ve been loving the heck out of them. I’m determined to make future quilt patterns fat quarter friendly.
