One of my big accomplishments this weekend was finishing this quilt top. The pattern is Woodland Star by Laura Blanchard (Plum Tree Quilts). I think it's really difficult to find well-written patterns and I have to say that Laura's patterns are some of the best. I'm already looking through her catalog for another project.
This quilt finishes to a queen size quilt (90" square) and it will be perfect for the couple I'm making it for. They are getting married in September and are very outdoorsy. The colors of the Salt Marsh gradient were just right. I really love using the gradients for outside borders. It's a big impact for little work and by that point I'm usually tired of piecing.
All in all, this quilt comes together relatively quickly.
I made this quilt for a wedding gift but I also made it because I want to offer more kits in my shop. Woodland Star is now an official kit for sale! It's 15% off for a limited time and the shipping is only the cost of a flat rate box. I cover any charges above that.
If you want to make one for yourself you can get the kit here. They are dyed to order so please allow 2 weeks for me to get your kit dyed and shipped.
