Stars for Lila

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Hidden Stars/ Book "Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts" by Pam & Nicky Lintott Link to website or photo mycraftivity.com What are you most proud of? I thought I did a pretty good job of the piecing but was a little disappointed with the quilting. The thread was too heavy and was hard to work with and I was trying to learn midarm quilting and found it to be quite a different skill than regular machine quilting. But I am proud that I finished and didn't have to take all the quilting out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are going to make the stars different colors, don't just assembly line the pieces. It takes thought to line them all up right. The pattern in the book has all the stars the same color so it doesn't mention this.

You Can Make This

Mervie made Stars for Lila with:

  • Cotton
  • thread
  • batting. I used a Moda Layer Cake in Meadow Friends Girl.
