Craft Buds blog? I just recently discovered it and it's pretty awesome. Then Lindsay started her annual Craft Book Month and I was completely hooked. The only thing I have more than fabric of is BOOKS! Seriously, as a voracious reader and crafter from way back (think birth) this was completely my bag baby. After finishing my last huge quilt project I wanted something quick and relatively easy. I've loved the Pretty In Patchwork Doll Quilts book by Cathy Gaubert since the moment I touched it and after reading all the great posts all month over at Craft Buds I was inspired to pull it out and make this mini quilt.
I fussy cut the center square since it ended up being 7' I just sized the rest of the squares down to match. Also, since my squares were 7" and I wanted all the sides of my star to be from the same fabric I cut just FOUR squares and then trimmed them in half, so I got them all from one fat quarter. I used an olive green shot cotton for the background and it finished up just shy of 20" square. I love it! Even though the weather still feels way more summer than fall around here, I'm doing what I can to get ready for fall indoors ;-)
If you haven't checked out all the amazing projects that bloggers have been sharing for the Craft Buds Craft Book Month 2012, spend a little time this weekend treating yourself to a look. You'll be inspired!
