I'm calling this one Avant Garden Vintage Stars... it is a riff on the Giant Vintage Star pattern by Jeni Baker that you can see here. Now my twist on this pattern is that I made it from one layer cake of Moda's Momo collection Avant Garden and the background fabric is a Basic Grey Grunge in a butterscotch color that I wish I'd bought a bolt of!! You can read more about this quilt in this post from last year.
Since by the time I got around to making this quilt the Momo collection had been out a while I was able to snag several pieces of yardage at a marked down price from my favorite store Fabric Shack. In fact, they still have some of this collection if you want to check it out. Here is a pic of the back...
I pulled it up on the bed so you can see all the little bits I included... I love this side too! This one was quilted by Terry Finnerty... love this panto and thread.
And I even made pillowcases to go with this quilt...actually it will go with 2 other quilts I've made with Momo fabrics so I'll get a lot of use out of these!
The pillowcases are a perfect example of why one should have a nice healthy stash of fabrics... I decided one morning that I NEEDED new pillowcases... now since I adore shopping online my first stop was to check out Fabric Shack which indeed still had a nice selection of Momo... and then I had another thought... what was lurking in my basement sealed in a plastic tub???? Enough fabric to make about a dozen pillowcases...LOL... but I stopped at 2! I'm so virtuous...not!
Anyway I'm quite happy with this look in my bedroom for late Summer, early Fall...just wish it was actually cool enough that I needed a quilt to sleep under...mostly it's been kicked to the bottom as it is still too hot here in Ohio for my taste. Now the local meteorologist says we are going to have a cool down but it is only for about 2 days... the long range forecast shows upper 80's again... but I suppose I should take comfort in the fact that they are upper 90's like we've been seeing. I shudder to think what my electric bill and my water bill are going to be !!!
