Lindsey's Baby #2 Quilt

Bunco Buddy Lindsey is expecting Baby #2 in August 2013 and a Baby Shower was planned for our May Bunco night.  Of course, this required a baby quilt.  Lindsey and her DH, prefer to not know the sex of their children in advance of the birth...going the old-fashioned way of having the excitement of the unknown.  

I purposely chose this large 8-pointed star pattern because a) it is simple and a fairly easy and quick pattern to accomplish and b) it lets the fmq and the fabrics be the stars of the quilts...which I like.  This gave me some room to try some "larger" fmq patterns than I normally do (not-stippling) and to do some edge-stitching around the floral designs for fmq practice.  This was a very fun quilt to do!

Here is the finished quilt front, back, and then some detail shots:

Love your neutral color selection. Your boarder sets the star off beautifully.
