Starstruck Pillow

The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Aurifil.

This month's Island Batik theme was Starstruck. We were tasked with creating anything featuring stars.

I opted to use my Victoria and Albert 10" stack to create simple, large scale sawtooth stars. This fabric collection is a lovely floral collection with a great variety of values. I split my 20 fabrics into lights and darks and pieced ten large blocks.

Nine of my blocks went into a lap size quilt top and the tenth block was quilted into a finished pillow.

Here's a bit of a closeup showing the four motifs of quilting (in four different Aurifil 50wt colors) I chose for the pillow.

I used a bit of leftover fabric from a different collection for the back of my pillow.


Thanks for visiting!

    Two projects! I love the pillow and the quilt. It is always worth it changing thread colors, I think the choices you made were perfect.

      Thank you, Kathleen. The four colors of thread really didn't look like they were going to be good together when I was holding the spools, but I am real happy with how they turned out on fabric.
