Old Glory Pillow

Project Quilting Season 4, #4 PersimonDreams "Wish upon a star"

Size of Pillow; 18" X 13". Made in Chico, Northern California.

 

I had high hopes that I could start and finish a quilt for my niece in one week! haha. It just happens to be a quilt with 80 stars (sparkle punch pattern). Friday came around and I had the points sewn, and that's it. So with time running out I decided to do a mini quilt with some scraps for the challenge. I got 4 blocks done and decided I liked it so much I didn't want to only make a mini. So now I have nothing for the challenge again. I thought I'll make a pot holder with a star! But I dread making pot holders....so I looked through some old images I had saved and came across a pillow from Lynn at Lily's quilts.

Did some patchwork for the blues and reds, quilted with straight lines, and appliqued the stars. Added a zipper on the bottom.
