    I started this quilt for my SIL, but ended up doing a different one for her. I wasn't that thrilled with the colors while I was working on this, but now that it's done, I really like it. I'm giving it to my nephew and his wife. At the last family party, she told me she's tired of hinting and came right out and asked for one. LOL How could I say no? :)

    The pattern is Lucky Stars, by Atkinson Designs. I've made several with this pattern in all sorts of colors and they all end up looking great. If you're looking for an easy pattern with great directions, this is a good one. The fabrics are various batik FQs I bought at the LQS.

    OMG - I am holding that pattern in my hands now! It has been sitting on my table - waiting for the 30+ fat quarters to go along with it. I loved the pattern at the quilt shop - bought it and am now in the process of buying the batiks to make it. THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to photograph your beautiful quilt and showing it to us! I am inspired for sure now.

    Love the quilt & the fabrics you chose for it. I've had the pattern for a couple of years, might just need to cut into the batiks and start it soon.

    It's gorgeous! I will keep my eyes out for that pattern. I', always looking for something that isn't too complicated since I'm a pretty new quilter! Good instructions are a necessity!
