3D Groovy Wrapped Star Finish

Wrapped Star

I have been buried deep in books about making 8 pointed stars. Construction methods, math, templates, names, and yes, new quilts I want to make this year! I think I'm in love with these versatile blocks! Technically, my 3D Groovy star is a Wrapped star as it has 4 strips to each star point, and perhaps also because of the 4 patches in the corner. I could not tease out if the pattern would still be called 'wrapped' without those, or if there were variations related to how the colors/values were used. It's nitty-gritty, but good to know.

Custom iPad Sleeve & Pet Project Show #20

I have had the fabric for this iPad sleeve
since January. My mother-in-law requested
something simple yet fairly well padded
to carry while travelling. The project
sat on the back burner while other things
took its place. I had it on my list of 
and I've checked it off.

This is for a bird lover, and the fabrics
seemed suited. I especially love the Acacia
print from Tula Pink used as the 
background fabric. A fantasy print, she's
mixed hummingbirds with what looks
like anemones.

Please Note
The closure is with 3M One. I strongly
warn against using any kind of magnetic
closure with electronics! They don't mix.

I did just a tad of FMQ on this with some
pebbling, and spiraling flames.

It doesn't show much at all on the outside,
but was a chance for me to practice. The
batting is my very dense 'Kevlar' batting,
and though I wouldn't guarentee it, I
think it will hold up fairly well to a drop.

I did a bit of outline FMQ on the front of the
economy block, or square within a square,
and some pebbling in the corners.
Less quilting means more loft.

So, 'Ta Dah!', and another finish down.
