Hello Friends, it’s lovely to have you visit again! This is another overdue post of an editorial feature that has been official for a couple of months… but I am glad I am finally getting to it, and it is the last one in my pile of overdue posts. Meet Stardom that is featured in Annie’s book Row Quilts – Longitudes & Latitudes. The book is available for purchase here.

Stardom is a music themed quilt that features different variations of the sawtooth star blocks.
Isn’t the Sawtooth Star one of the most fun blocks, ever?
Stardom uses fabrics from Benartex’s Concerto fabrics! These fabrics are MUST HAVES for music lovers! Click here to view what this fabric range has to offer.
I used the “Composer’s Ombre Gold” swatch in the border — I love love love this swatch!
I pieced and quilted the quilt with Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton threads – no surprise there, right?! Batting is Hobbs‘ Tuscany silk batt. I have talked about my choices of thread and batting here, and here.
My Miss Baby had another milestone over last weekend. The little Miss had her first recital!
I was thoroughly stressed out over it, but not Miss Baby. She did fine. It seems a bit silly now thinking about just how stressed I was.
So, I would love to hear any recital stories you might have – and tips too if you care to share! Also, I would love to hear if you have ever made a musical quilt.
Thank you again for stopping by! I hope you have liked Stardom. I shall catch up with you later, after I catch up on a bit of rest!
