finished STARS QAL

I finally finished my STARS QAL top last week. I went to link to it the other day and realized I never posted a picture of it all done and pretty on my blog!

This is a fantastic little pattern if you love stars. Melissa did a great job writing up instructions for making 6 different star blocks - some are classic stars and some are a little more modern. I used stars 1 - 5 in my top, mostly because I was able to do four of each to finish the top. I stipple quilted it with my machine and bound it with purple. I used mostly solid purple but added a little of the stripped print (you can see it at the corner).

The really fun part of this top is that all the blocks are wonky cut. After making the star, you add sashing and then "wonky it" with a ruler as you trim it to size. I went gentle with my wonky cuts but it adds a little bit of fun to the top. If you want to see the wonky cuts better, here is a link to my best bud holding the finished top up.
