Friendly Stars – The Bonnie and Camille jelly roll quilt

I’m finally getting around to sharing this version of the Friendly Stars Quilt!Β Β  When I designed this quilt I couldn’t decide if I wanted it scrappy or non scrappy so I did both πŸ™‚Β  You can find the original Friendly Stars quilt here.

I’ve actually attempted to post this quilt several times but never liked the photos.Β Β  Finally calling it good enough and putting it out in to the quilty world.

Friendly Stars is a jelly roll quilt pattern and you can pick up a copy in my shop.Β  And then decide for yourself, scrappy or non scrappy πŸ˜‰

I used a Little Ruby Jelly roll for my version of this quilt. Β  I’m finding myself reaching for reds in my quilting more and more lately.Β  I love the contrast reds and pinks adds to a quilt.

Friendly Stars is quilted with the zig zag stitch. Β  I use my walking foot on the multi stitch option for this quilting effect.Β  You can still see the lines I marked on this quilt using the Hera Marker. Β  I’m really loving the Hera Marker for quilting lately. Β  My lines end up much more accurate than when I tape a guide to my walking foot.Β  These lines are spaced about 3/4in apart.
