Stars Upon Thars Quilt in Generation Q Magazine


This is one of my favorite quilts! And I don’t even have a good picture of it. It appeared in the July/August issue of Generation Q Magazine.

2014 July Aug Gen Q

I designed this quilt for my brother. It all started with these Mickey Mouse bicycle sheets that I bought on ebay.

He has a young family that likes to ride bicycles. He and his wife even have a tandem bike. I decided I wanted to make them a fun quilt and use this as the back.

The quilt I came up with I called Stars Upon Thars.

The name, from Dr. Suess, is as playful as the quilt. The large squares in the center of the stars is ice cream and candy fabric. Then I added a lot of bright fun colors to complement the centers. I guess you will just have to find a magazine to get a better picture.

This is one quilt I will definitely make again. That is something I rarely do.

    this pattern turned out so cute, I love the colors. You do love your half square triangles, but for this I just might have to do them.
