Sunday Quilt Inspiration: S T A R S

Having just been to Houston for the annual Quilt Festival, I thought we could revisit star quilts.  The Texas star is, after all, well known and appears very often on houses, barns and fences.  

Here are a few star quilts from across Pinterest.

Try a selection of 4", 8", and 12" stars; Sunset on Anna Maria Island: grays, oranges, golds, turquoise, etc.

Star Fling Quilt ◆ The panto used on this one is called Wildflower and looks nice with all the tiny floral prints in the fabrics. A light brown So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting was used.

Simple Sawtooth Star Quilt Pattern

Looks like feather quilting on the star ~ I have a great star quilt to quilt and wasn't sure what to quilt on I know!
