Here it is, another version of my Inside Out Star quilt and a cute pillow!
This is the quilt I made while trying to write the tutorial for the quilt. I’m very happy with how it turned out. However, my calculations were a little off and I ended up making an extra block. Let’s just call it a happy accident! 🙂
So what did I do with the extra block? Well I turned it into a pillow! How adorable is this guy? I’m so smitten with this pillow that I think I have to make more orphan blocks with each quilt so they have a companion.
I used a charm square package to make this quilt, a total of 42 squares. Luckily, there were doubles so it wasn’t too scrappy.
I used up some flannel I had from a few years ago. It makes the back so soft and cuddly, it made me question myself, why haven’t I used flannel for backing more often? If you haven’t tried it, add it to your quilty bucket list, it’s worth it!
You all know I love free motion quilting! But I tried my best not to go overboard on this one. I added gentle swirls in the white background fabric and grabbed my ruler to do some dot to dot quilting in the colored squares.
Of course I did my go to for the binding, navy and white pin stripes. I just adore the look it gives.
