What materials did you use? Two Moda layer cakes in "Summer's End" with cotton background fabric and thread, polyester wadding.

What are you most proud of? Using up so much of the leftover material from the first, larger, quilt to make the small one, thereby reducing my stash quite a bit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I were making this again, I'd slice up the two layer cakes into four charm packs (less expensive than buying four charm packs) and make the big quilt of the small blocks. It would take a lot longer, but I'm sure it would be much nicer. I think I may go back to the larger one and do some FMQ in the cream bits which are a large expanse of nothingness at the moment, but not until I've had a bit more practice and feel a little more confident about it.

Beautiful stars on both quilts! Such pretty colors.

Thank you. I'm thinking of filling in the negative space with some FMQ (once I find the time and pluck up the courage!). I don't know if I'll ever get around to it, though!

Great idea!

I've signed up for the "Quilting Negative Space" tutorial so, if I live long enough, I just might (and I said "MIGHT") get around to quilting this one day!

I've got to say when I first looked at this I love the contrast in size's of the pattern. I didn't realize at first glance that this was two quilts. I think you did a great job.

Thank you! As I said in my introduction narrtative, I probably wouldn't have chosen to make the big one if I'd realised just how large the blocks would be. However, I think that if I ever get around to doing some free motion quilting in the negative spaces, it may be more satisfactory. The little one is better, but a bit of an odd size and it was difficult to know quite what to do with it!
