twinkle {a finished quilt}

She's finished and as sweet as can be.


It took me a while, somehow I lost steam once the blocks were made, but last night I finally finished this adorable little quilt.


I used this fantastically written tutorial by Allison (Cluck Cluck Sew) to make star blocks. I must say, I  really really love star quilts, but I don't actually enjoy making stars. All that constant pressing and trimming was driving me totally crazy :(


I decided to use this lovely, wonderfully soft doggie flannel for the backing. I love using flannel for baby quilts. It's soft and cuddly right from the beginning, and gets even softer and cuddlier with every wash. 


Finished size of the quilt is 41" x 41" and it is available for sale. Here's the link to my etsy store if interested.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a very lovely rest of the day. Svetlana

Linking up to Finish it up Friday.
