The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Aurifil.
This month's Island Batik theme was Starstruck. We were tasked with creating anything featuring stars.
I opted to use my Victoria and Albert 10" stack to create simple, large scale sawtooth stars. This fabric collection is a lovely floral collection with a great variety of values. I split my 20 fabrics into lights and darks and pieced ten large blocks.
Nine of my blocks went into a lap size quilt top and the tenth block was quilted into a finished pillow.
Here's a bit of a closeup showing the four motifs of quilting (in four different Aurifil 50wt colors) I chose for the pillow.
I used a bit of leftover fabric from a different collection for the back of my pillow.
Thanks for visiting!
Oh wow, I really love the colour combination of your quilt. It's Beautiful ♥
Thank you, Michelle. It is a lovely collection.
Two projects! I love the pillow and the quilt. It is always worth it changing thread colors, I think the choices you made were perfect.
Thank you, Kathleen. The four colors of thread really didn't look like they were going to be good together when I was holding the spools, but I am real happy with how they turned out on fabric.

I like that you were able to create a quilt top and coordinating pillow. Do you have plans for the quilt and pillow?
No plans yet, Yvonne. I'll have to find the right recipient for this gift. :-)
