Sea Star Quilt Top Finished!!
I'm pretty thrilled about this, and if I can figure out how to share the PDF on my blog, I'll try to do that!
I also found another "Mariner's Compass" Star pattern that was originally on Quilting on the Square's website. I think I found a link for it on Pinterest. It was by far the most challenging block, but I love the way it turned out!
Almost all of the fabric is from Tula Pink's Saltwater collection.
Here's one last picture of the top with the 2 blocks I decided to take out. I turned the quilt blocks on point, adding alternating blocks of the background fabric, and setting triangles. It's all finished up with a boarder around the panel. The 2 extra blocks will either go onto the back of the quilt, or I may make some throw pillows out of them. I'm happy with my decision to remove them. One thing I learned from this quilt process is that I really don't like "mystery" quilts. I really prefer to see the whole picture before I even start a quilt. I'm glad I did it though, as I really got a great handle on how paper piecing works and I got lots of practice!!
What about you? Do you like mystery quilts / BOM clubs?
