Minis and More: Summer Star quilt top


In an attempt to make up my mini charms and charm packs into wallhangings or table toppers, I am going to participate in the Minis and More Parade. (See link in sidebar for more info.) Time will tell how far I get with this endeavor : )



Here is my July entry. Summer Star - perfect pattern for July made up with Prairie Paisley II by Minick & Simpson for Moda,perfect fabric for July. Love how the top turned out! As I wanted a larger wall hanging, I used a regular charm pack (5" squares) to make my Summer Star. This pattern pieced very quickly. Pattern available here - Etsy.

So Happy my points came out a lot better this time (probably because I took more care with my piecing and trimming). I won't be able to get it quilted until next week but I'm feeling proud of myself for getting the top done. I have wanted to make a patriotic wall hanging for several years. Step one completed! 

Happy Fourth of July, everyone!!!

  1. Turned out great. I think I have charm pack of this fabric and you have me questioning myself as to why I haven't used it yet :)
