WIP # 14 - DS Giant Starflower quilt

Earlier this week I decided to make a quilt for my daughters best friend who is also turning 16 this month. I had bookmarked the lovely Giant Vintage Starflower quilt by Jeni at In Color Order a few weeks ago and as I don’t have any of the pretty vintage sheets she has used, thought I’d try it with some of the fabrics from the Denyse Schmidt Picnics, Fairgrounds and Winding Roads ranges.
 So I chose some of the fresh blue and green fabrics as Lil likes blue, with some white solid for the rest of the background and sewed the quilt top together. I thought the triangles would be tricky as they are cut on the bias but so far so good……..
 Now I have it all basted and ready to quilt.

  1. Oh, this looks fantastic! This is going to be an incredible quilt.

  2. It is looking good! I'm drawn to the blues & greens of the DS lines & have made two quilts with them - I think you'll be very happy with it! Great idea!

  3. It is lovely! I want to try that one too :)
    Love all the fabrics, great choice!
