Fastest quilt top. ever

If you're in need of a super fast and lovely quilt top, I highly recommend Jeni's tutorial for the giant vintage star quilt.

Vintage Star

I cut fabric for this Friday afternoon, and finished sewing it together last night. Overall time was probably five or six hours including ironing (and a few breaks).

I used a fat quarter bundle (8 prints) of a line called Vintage Summer by Little Yellow Bicycle for Blend Fabrics. I paired the prints with Kona Chocolate.

Elliott helped me get some pictures while we visited my mom this afternoon. I plan to get the back made this week, using more Chocolate, and a yard of the cheater print for the line (I got this from Brenda, but it is unfortunately sold out.) Of course, I am out of batting again (except for the one reserved for Swoon!), but as soon as it's back "in stock", I'll put this one in the quilting queue.

And to leave with you some cuteness, my friend Amy just welcomed a new kitty into her home. Ringo!



  1. Very pretty! I have some of this line, but not the cheater print... all sold out when I tried to get some :(

  2. So fun to have a project go so quick!

  6. Love the colors and the chocolate works so well! And I have to say it was beautiful in person! Looking forward to seeing
