Summer Stars is finished and measures 61" by 72". Joy from Calico Point was the long arm quilter.
The jelly roll and border fabric came from Calico Point too.
Some of the pieced square don't look quite right but I can live with it. The 8 year old granddaughter will be thrilled.
This year I decided to subscribe to Block magazine from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. The first issue came February 20th, the same day I was leaving for Phoenix. I stuck it in my bag so I could peruse it while relaxing on my vacation.
The first quilt I chose to make from Volume 1, 2020 of Block is Summer Stars. MSQ has the pattern for sale but you can watch the tutorial for free. Just click it and watch.
This pattern has wonky stars. I didn't understand the Block directions for piecing the stars. I finally cut some strips 2-1/2" by 3" and cut them diagonally. These diagonal cuts worked much better for me.
The backing is the same large dotted whole cloth fabric that was used on the back of Calico Stars.
Two final pictures of the finished quilt.
