I am excited to finally be here today to talk about my latest Blakely Quilt make! Back in the fall of 2021, I pioneered a big "let's sew for fun!" adventure. In the course of about a month we made the following quilts:
- Inside Out Star - the Scrappy Flannel One
- Modern Holiday Jawbreaker Quilt
- Caroline's Campfire Glow Quilt
- Diamond Ripples - Scrappy First Light Quilt
And the last quilt to finally get a place on the blog is our Starry Blakely quilt! Ruby Star Society announced the reintroduction of the Starry line by Alexia Abegg last year and it is by far my favorite print of Alexia's. In the Spring 2021 catalogue (pg 38) they show Starry and several quilts ideas using it! I actually had these two quilts in their catalogue:
Starry in Backyard Party - Large Throw using 10 HYs
Campfire Glow - Throw Size
Originally I had intended on making the Backyard Party with the Half Yard Bundle RSS sent to me but I switched plans at the last minute to make the HY bundle work with Blakely.
I ended up using 10 different colors - Natural Black for the background and then 9 other prints for the main color strips.
I used the following Starry Prints:
- Natural Black
- Black Gold
- Soft Blue
- Dark Peony
- Warm Red
