Asterisks Quilt / Century Solids Scrappy Version

Asterisks Quilt / Century Solids Scrappy Version

Hi friends

I am excited to share a finished quilt with you all today - the Scrappy version of the Asterisks Quilt! When I originally designed this quilt it was supposed to be a follow up to the Snowflake pattern. I wanted something with more snowflakes than just the one large one - and here we are with the Asterisks quilt pattern. I used white for the Asterisks shapes to really show off that snow look I was hoping for. The background I wanted bold and colorful patchwork - to match our holiday decorations, so the Hopscotch bundle of Century solids was a perfect fit!

This actually is the very first version of the quilt I made when I was working on the pattern, so it definitely has a special place in my heart.

Fabrics used for the scrappy background:

The scrappy background calls for 13 Fat Quarters, but you can always add more for a scrappier look.

For the quilting, my talented friend Katie from Modern Textiles used the pants Late Night - I think it was such a great idea - those asterisks shapes really pop!
