    My cartoon stars top finished--YAHHHHHHH

    A few weeks back, I posted a couple of star blocks made from a Looney Tunes fabric, using the stack and whack process. Well, I have finally gotten all 36 blocks sewn together. I only used 20 of them for this top, so will have enough for a second top. Not sure what I will do with it, but can always find someone who can use a lap quilt. This top ended up measuring 60x90, which is good, because it will go to one of my grandkids, who are 5`10 or taller, and they are girls. I did include the last 4 blocks of the original material, to always know what the stars came from. Enjoy looking.

    This second picture shows a close up of some of the blocks and the original fabric.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Love your quilt! I'm glad you used a full cut of your fabric too. I always wonder what fabric was used to create such a great quilt block. Now I know.

    I really like how the blocks turned out. This looks different from other stack and whacks or OBW's. Can you give me a brief overview of what your process was? It looks like 8 layers of fabric and did you make diamond shape cuts and then the background fabric is attached using Y seams?

    You are exactly right. 8 layers of fabric, and I have the ruler to cut them all the same size and then I figured out that I wanted the side pieces to make the star "float" so I cut them bigger than would normally be cut. I have issues with getting this block to come out right, and not cutting off the tip of the stars when I square them up. This is the second quilt that I have done in the past 12 months, and so I am getting better at the Y seams and really don't mind them. Hope that this helps you. Thanks for the comment

    I've never seen a stack and whack that I've liked, before today. I really like yours. It has such movement! Thank you for posting a picture and also for showing what the original material looked like. I've never seen that done either! Nice work.
    Go forth and sew!

    The Y seams were one of the first things I noticed - beautifully done! The whole quilt is gorgeous.
