I love finding ways to use fat quarter bundles to make quilts. I think that’s because I am looking for a way to justify buying them! My latest favorite bundle is Victoria by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics. Once I saw this bundle I just knew I needed to find a pattern for it and Silhouette Stars, designed by Gerri Robinson, featured in McCall’s Quilting  January/February 2015 is the perfect choice!

Since I am smitten with all the prints in this collection, I have decided to use the lighter prints for the center stars in the blocks instead of the background fabric. I’m also adding a couple of borders so it will be large enough for my bed. It’s pretty fun to pair up the fabrics! I figure with careful cutting I will be able to make 2 blocks from each pair.
