Bloggers Quilt Festival-Starry Night in the Mountains


Here is my second entry for the September 2018  Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side.   It too was another Island Batik project – a challenge to create a secondary pattern (the fabrics, thread and batting were supplied by Island Batik and their associates – Hobbs and Aurifil).  I like the simplicity of the Friendship Star and the Snowball block, both used in the quilt.  Also pleasing to me, was that the secondary pattern mimicked the friendship star!


This design, too, started in Electric Quilt, EQ8.  I don’t really love drawing quilts, but find it much faster to play with the design on the computer.

You can see the three patterns that show up.  There is a Friendship Star, a Sawblade Star (similar but smaller points that the Friendship Star) and an Eight Pointed Star.  The last was a surprise, and a little hard to see – but it is there.
