I needed 36 total blocks and since there are 10 of us in the circle, I asked everyone to make 3 or 4 blocks using pinks, reds, oranges, and yellows for the star points and low volume prints for the background. Despite being a little vague about how many blocks to send, I ended up with exactly 36 blocks. Perfect. The stars (which are made up of 4 blocks) are 20" finished and I really like how big and graphic they are.
I quilted it with an all over paisley pattern. This is the second time I have used this pattern and I really enjoy it. The finished size is a little under 60" square.
The backing and binding are both Sanae prints from Moda, but they are from different lines. I think the backing is from Oh My! and the binding is from Oz.
Speaking of Do Good Stitches, have you seen this quilt? It was quilted by Caitlin who is also in the Wish Circle. I loved making these blocks and I absolutely love how the quilt turned out.
