Celestial Stars – Final Linkup – 24” Mini Quilt

Here’s my very first celestial star block I made! It was kind of my practice run before I started the blocks for my actual quilt. It definitely taught me a few things to be more careful with and aware of on my other blocks!! I turned this one into a mini quilt.

I went all out quilting this one; thread changes at every color, lots of fancy shmancy-ness (yes, it’s a word ;) ). I’m pretty sure I put more thread in this 24” square than I do into most regular baby quilts! By the way, it was a great practice for my FMQ, which NEEDS lots of practice :)

I did leave the bobbin white the whole time though, so this shot of the back shows the quilting pretty well. I used a pink on pink ta dot for the back.

I love this little mini!! It may or may not be winging its way to a new home soon ;)

I really like the whimsical look you added to such a geometric block, with the quilting and the binding.
