Triple Star Mini Quilt

I thought it might be fun to give you a sneak peek at my next pattern, which is based on the quilt I designed for my husband and blogged about at the end of September.  I have always loved this star design that I started working on 3 years ago and it is finally going to be a mini quilt pattern!

Triple Star Mini Quilt -

I thought Triple Star was an appropriate name for this quilt. What do you think?

Next I have to find a backing for this baby and quilt her up. I’m torn between machine and hand quilting.  Which would you want if I was sending this quilt to you? Oh and I also have to write the pattern!

This is also my October goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes, you have until tomorrow night to link up your goal for the month!

    Looking good! Isn’t there a triple star block? The one with star inside star? Yours is different. It’s like stars with flames or shall we say shinning star?

    The name suits it. I love the colors. Knowing your machine quilting is so wonderful, I wouldn’t care which kind of quilting. I’d say if you want or need a soothing project to do in the evening, hand quilt it, and if not, stick it on the machine and go. =)

    Oh, I just love it. I think it would be fun to machine quilt. I love stars. I just finished a fun star quilt for my little great niece and had so much fun putting it together.

    I love this Melissa! I can see it in Christmas colours/fabrics for the holidays. Beautiful work,,,as always.

  5. This pattern is fabulous and it’s going to give people so much room to play with their fabrics and with making sure all those points are just right. Can’t wait to see what people make. Congratulations!

    I like the name and colours. I would hand quilt it stitching a quarter inch in on each square and triangle to highlight them. Wish I could use power-point here to illustrate what I mean. I might even use different colours to blend with each block (white on white etc) so that the points popped and one was not aware of the thread.

    Good job.

    Wow, this quilt is a beauty. Your colors are fantastic… and I have no brainstorms about quilting it but love it so much I had to comment anyway!

    I love this quilt – it has so much visual impact! Great job. If you need anyone to test your pattern, when you write, let me know. I’d love to try it.
