Wonky Asterisk Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It was one of the first times I did the quilting on my own machine, at least bigger than pillow size, and devised the design myself...not perfect but very attractive. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just begin, and use fabrics that you love!

What you will need

  • I used leftover materials from a batik quilt that I made for my son
  • and some extra fabric that I bought.

Q&A with quilt47

Dawny Duck asked:
Sometimes the choice of colours (this is how we spell it in my country) can make a relatively easy block into a stunning quilt! Yours stands out.
quilt47 answered:
Thank you Dawny Duck! Thrilled to hear comments from other countries!
ftkfowler asked:
Your quilt is lovely. I didn't care for the block individually but in the quilt of all the wonky blocks, it's great.
quilt47 answered:
I originally tried it just to 'try' it! Then as I saw several blocks go together, I expanded my purpose!

Wonderful quilt...Love your fabric choices.. Judy in Phx, AZ
quilt47 answered:
Funny...I began the Atacama Crossings quilt in Phx, AZ,, and bought some of my fabrics out there. We spent 2 weeks in a rental and I sewed in the bedroom area, machine on a desk, cutting tools on top of a small dresser, and ironing board at the window! The bed became my design wall! Loved it...
nalaha3 asked:
Wow! This looks fantastic! Think I'll have to add one of these to my list of "gonna make one" Did you stack and slash your background fabrics? Can't quite see if all the angles are the same.
quilt47 answered:
I did answer you but put my answer in as a new comment from a stranger. Then answer is no, I did not stack and slash!
