It was quite a few years ago that Bethany Reynolds came to our quilt guild and showed us the cool techniques in her book Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts.  Of course I had to give it a try; I’m a sucker for any cool new technique. 🙂

This quilt top was the result: (click to embiggen)


I only had so much of the main fabric, so had to fill in three blocks with baskets, which I think keeps it interesting.

The squares in the corners are the fabrics that all the stars were made from.


You can tell it was a while ago cuz this Debbie Mumm fabric was new at the time.


This block is made from the above section of fabric.  Can you find the portion?  It’s kinda like playing Eye Spy. 🙂


This quilt had been just a top for TOO long.  It was one of my favorites, but I never got around to finishing it.  The daughter of a dear friend was getting married, and this top was the largest in my stash so, as much as I hated to give it up, it got finished for her.  I hope the newlyweds enjoy it and know that much love went into every stitch. 🙂

So, whether you’re making something brand new, and finishing up an old UFO, Happy Creating!

  1. Wow, that’s great! I know from meager experience how difficult those stars are. Very nice work, and congratulations to your friend’s daughter and her new husband!

    1. She has good tips in the book for helping you sew the stars accurately. The fun part was seeing how differently each one came out.
