Hey Everyone! I am back from a little Hawaiian staycation ;). My Dad and Step-mom came to town and we had a great week at the new Disney resort in Ko Olina called the Aulani. The kids and I had a blast swimming, enjoying the ocean view and spending time with family.
Last night I finished binding my latest finish, the Supernova quilt! This quilt his heading to a very good friend of mine who just had a baby boy. I had been dying to do this pattern, so I went for it in some fun boy colors. I have been crushing on the constellations fabric forever, so it was fun to use it in a quilt.
This pattern is in this great book, Quilting Modern. If you buy this book (and you should!) don’t buy the kindle version, it has errors. The publisher is aware of them, after I told them, but I’m not sure if they have been corrected. So I would get the actual copy! I’m thankful to my friend Amber for texting me the image of the info I was missing!
This pattern came together surprisingly well, I had the top finished in about a week. I spent a few late nights watching old movies and had fabric spread out all over the kitchen island.
I love the fussy cut constellation heart for the center.
The quilting is very simple. I was having a really hard time deciding what do do. I didn’t want to over quilt it and was regretting the decision to quilt it myself since I know I wouldn’t be able to complete it how I really want it without a long-arm. So I went with simple and let the piecing of the front be the star.
I feel like this quilt is a little overkill for a baby quilt, but I love giving something that they can really grow into and enjoy for longer than the baby days.
It measures 65 x 79
