Madhuri and Star Blossoms

A few weeks ago Sinta at Pink Pin Cushion was nice enough to share a fat quarter bundle of fabric with me for a sew along.  The fabric was Madhuri by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake.

We decided the perfect pattern for that fabric would be Star Blossoms by Bonnie at Cotton Way.




Are you familiar with this star blossom block?  They're very cute star blocks with little blossoms surrounding them.  I think it looks like little crowns surrounding the stars, more of a princess blossom, either way, these blinged up stars make a great spring project.

The selvage on this family of fabrics is very cute too, elephants.



I'm so glad the trunks are up, doesn't that mean good luck?


I've made my four center blocks using pink background fabric.  My plan is to surround them with blocks that have a white background.  We'll see how that works out, lol.



So for  my spring it's sewing with a friend and using pretty and cheerful fabric for a fun pattern, what could possibly go wrong?

  5. Is your pink background fabric more of the "grunge" fabric?
