First Star I See Tonight
December 2014

I am not sure of the name for this quilt pattern, but liked the design and thought it would work well for the fabrics I had chosen. Sometimes I begin the design process by choosing fabrics from my plentiful supply of leftovers and donations, or I might start by finding an interesting pattern that I want to try out, or I might choose fabrics to match one of the fleece backing pieces that I have on hand.

The blue star fabric was a donation from Jamie’s friend, while the light blue fabric was leftover from the edge binding on Reflecting on 42º. I think the color palette works well for a boy’s quilt. If you haven’t noticed, I try to alternate girl/boy for the quilts since they are going to foster kids. Doing quilts for boys is always trickier trying to find a fabric that isn’t too fussy (i.e. feminine).

I donated this quilt to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in December 2014.
