There are two new Quilty Love patterns available today!
Ninja Stars quilt is one of those two. Be sure to check out the Sweet Summertime blog post also!
Ninja stars is just that, a star quilt pattern that reminds me of ninja stars ;) I must be the mother of boys. My boys definitely went through a Ninja stage. Anyways, back to the quilt…
This quilt is a jelly roll friendly quilt pattern and has instructions for a scrappy version and non scrappy version. It comes in two sizes: Crib and Throw. You will need one jelly roll precut or pull some strips from your stash or use up your 2.5in scraps! I love a good jelly roll quilt and a good scrap quilt. This one can be either! This was the first time I used Tula Pink fabric! I picked up a Slow and Steady jelly roll because there are so many prints in this line that I love! Not sure why it took so long to jump on the Tula Pink bandwagon! Tula colors are so bold and beautiful :) Ninja Stars quilt is backed in this Free Fall wide backing by Tula Pink. This is the softest fabric ever! It reminded me of the soft, drapey silkiness of the Target sheets I’ve used as backings in the past. It’s definitely a backing I’ll be using again. Using a wide backing is the best because there is no cutting or piecing! This Tula Pink Ninja Stars quilt is straight line quilted with one inch diagonal lines using a walking foot. I used the Hera Marker to mark the lines before quilting.
