This HST star quilt practically jumped out of the drawer and begged to be finished. The blocks were made for me by the Sew Beautiful bee. I had fallen in love with a similar quilt made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts (and I think she was inspired by Jeni's Giant Vintage Star Quilt). So I sent the Sew Beautiful ladies a bunch of Kona Solid charm squares to make the blocks.
What did inspire me was the color palette and the prints I used for these blocks. I had squirreled away most of the fabric so that I would have it when I decided to work on these again, but I think it's time to put all these fabulous vintage prints back into GenPop. And I'm going to start with a project I've been intending to make for many months (years, really): A simple patchwork picnic quilt for my family.
