Scrappy Purple Star Quilt – Finished!

This quilt was pretty fun to make.  The center star is 36″ finished, and I think it used a total of 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 yd of purple “made fabric”.

I started with piecing the smallest bits of fabric together and adding on the larger and larger fabrics until I ended up with about a yard.  From there I cut the setting triangles and the points for the star.  I had to piece together another bit for the star center.

Scrappy Purple Star QuiltThe quilting is an overall meander – purple thread in the purple, and white thread in the white.  I’m considering recreating this as a wallhanging in a different color, and making the quilting more interesting, like a different filler in each fabric.

Of course I had to piece the back, too!

  1. Such a fun quilt! I love the use of scraps in this one and the idea of “made” fabric. I think I may need to try something like this!

  2. I want to learn to meander like that. What helped you to get so good.? Did you learn from craftsy class? Do you stitch in ditch first?
