My Version of Let Your Star Shine

I confess to being the recipient of a squirrel attack today. Actually it hit me yesterday but I was just putting the borders on another finish.

This seems to sum up my mental capacity these days! 😉😝

After a week of playing with scraps, the timing was perfect because Sandra from MMM Quilts just published a new pattern in her Etsy Shop. You all know how much I enjoy making anything with Sandra’s patterns. Then I saw Wendy’s version on Instagram and knew that nothing would satisfy my interest but dropping everything and making it!

My focal fabric is a Robert Kaufman fabric that I have been hoarding saving for a special project.

I was distracted a few times to go out and watch the helicopters but in no time at all I had this beauty coming together.

Don’t you just love it when patterns are so well written you only have minimal fabric waste when trimming your blocks?

All in all, I started and finished this quilt top in just a few hours!

I even found a patch of green grass to be able to get a photo which colours aren’t quite true due to the smoke.

This little quilt or wall hanging finishes at 36 1/2” square. I’m thinking that I will add more borders to make it a bit larger.

All of the quilt tops I’m working on these days will be quilted when I can get to the studio after the evacuation alert is rescinded and then donated to the Quilts for Lytton Fire.

I’d like to send a huge thank you to Sandra of MMM Quilts for writing the perfect pattern to pick up my spirits.

Did you see Tish from Tish in Wonderland and Wendy from Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life also made versions of this fun little quilt?

To get your copy of this pattern just click on Sandra’s Website name or on her Etsy Shop.

I’m thinking I need to make this again so I’m going to dig through my stash to see if any other of my fabrics are “just right” for the plan I have in mind.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Oh I love that Kaufman fabric – it looks great in this quilt! I have a second fabric pull waiting – I’m trying to ignore it and get some of the things I need to get done, done! LOL. Isn’t it a fun pattern? And so quick! Nicely done!

    1. Hi Wendy. I love this pattern! I just couldn’t resist making it after seeing Sandra’s and yours. I did behave and finish the to I was working on first. I wish I had more of that Kaufman fabric. I’ve saved the last of it for a special project. I have an idea for a second pull but really have to finish a test and a hop project first. It’s as addicting as Follow Your Own Path!


  2. Ah, the squirrels have hit!!! I’m resisting (for the moment) but your quilt is so darn cute! I might not be able to resist for long. Oh, but I’m trying to resist!!!
    Did I say how cute this quilt is? 🙂

    1. Thanks Gail. It’s totally addicting this pattern. I admire your resistance. I had none really but did finish my scrappy top first 😉I do have another fabric pull in mind but have to do another hop project first 😅


  3. Well, if you must have a squirrel attack, at least it was a one day finish! This quilt is just stunning. The size is perfect for donating to our community pregnancy center. I’ll be considering acquiring the pattern. Thanks for the share!

    1. Isn’t it a beauty? I loved how easy it was to make and cutting it was so quick(even with the distractions). I love Sandra’s patterns for the clear instructions. That’s great that it would work for your Pregnancy Center. It’s on sale still I think 😉
