Materials
You will need:
1.  At least one yard of solid fabric, or being more generous 1 metre- (equivalent to 1 yard and 3 inches)
2.  Scraps for the starts, I am fussy cutting centre squares so you will need  9 x 5 inch squares (larger to allow for the fussy cutting.
3.  Scraps for the triangle points-great scrap buster.  Scraps need to contrast with the solid.
4.  1 yard/1 meter cotton batting, I use warm and natural.
5.  Fabric for binding.  Could be pieced or all one fabric.   You will need 1/2 yard to be on the safe side or 1/4 metre- a long quarter, not a fat quarter.
6. Usual sewing kit, machine, rotary cutter, quilt ruler, thread etc.

This is a little quicky pen sketch just to give you an idea of where we are going with the design.

Finished!
Making this quilt was such a happy experience.  Many of the fabrics were little pieces and scraps given to me from bloggy friends which always makes a project feel extra special.
Making it as a quilt- a- long shared the making of it with other talented sewers.  I have loved seeing your quilts grow and your different styles coming through in your fabric choices and stars. Keep the pics coming to the Flickr group!
