Pattern Details

Many dancing star fish will charm your little girl. Add some smimming mermaids or any of the charming nautical motif fabrics so popular right now, and you have the perfect baby quilt! This baby quilt is a wholecloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique star fish are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, folk look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray. Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 42x36 inches

I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine. I want everyone who tries one of my patterns to enjoy the experience of quilting and the satisfaction of a finished project.
