My brother's Birthday Quilt (May 22nd)
I made my brother, Matt his own quilt for his birthday. This one I based on Fig Tree & Co quilt pattern "Jelly Stars"... I used a mixture of various fabrics from my stash to make each star unique. I used a lightweight spring/summer organic cotton batting and machine quilted the entire quilt (88" x 88") with swirls,stars, lady bugs, bees, fireflies and meandering stippling. I made it a little larger by adding a bigger border than called for in the original pattern. It was truly an easy pattern to cut-out and put together.
