These quilts were created for my second cousins.  My cousin just had her second baby, and since I never got around to a quilt for first baby, I thought I might as well make one for each of them.  They were made from the Giant Star Block Quilt Pattern by Jeni at In Color Order.  Since the pattern is so big, I scaled them down to be more kid sized.  The blocks came to 9" finished, and the quilts are 36" square.  Though I forgot to get pictures of the backs, they are both backed in different prints of the same color scheme, and the quilting thread matches the backings of each.  Mustard dandilions and thread on the mustard, teal and magenta quilt, and lime green polka dots and thread on the lime, magenta & charcoal quilt.











I have to say that I really loved how these came together.  The color schemes shifted ever so slightly during the cutting process, but other than that, it was pretty smooth sailing.  I loved the simplicity of the design, and the idea of using a single block as an entire quilt.  I'd still like to get around to making a full sized one.  Possibly for a guest room in our future house.

I like them very much. Lovely colors and a great design. Maybe I should try the 'giant block'-quilt, too...

I never thought about using a large scale block as the entire quilt  but that is stunning!  Did you tack it together or quilt it?
