star light star bright {update}

 Remember that little poem?

Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might, 
Have the wish I wish tonight

My daughter's scrappy charm cot quilt is all finished, just in time for the baby shower
Little cot quilts are my favourite fast finish, a great way to try out ideas, fabrics, color combinations,
and of course, just perfect for teaching purposes! 
And hopefully my daughter is hooked now,
I've got a bit of a scrappy fabric stash here on the shelf and I need her help to use it up!

and one last shot before this little quilt heads off to it's new home...


  1. Beautiful. The mom-to-be will be thrilled.

  2. Welcome, new quilter!
    I love that star up in the blue sky!

  3. That star works miracles, such a charming cot quilt!

    1. Thank you! I can't tell you how many times I've added a 'wonky star' to my scrappy baby quilts over the years!

  4. Oh, the star really makes it!

  5. Love that one little red star. The blue squares are very pretty too! Surely your daughter will love it.

  6. Lovely blues, made fabulous by the red star.
