Liberty Lawn Giant Vintage Star Quilt

Tuesday, January 22, 2019


Happy Tuesday! I'm excited to share another recent quilt finish with you today! This was the first quilt I started after we moved, and I managed to finish it up just before the end of the year.


This Giant Vintage Star Quilt was made with lawn fabrics! The lovely folks at Alice Caroline provided the Liberty of London prints for the quilt top. Thankfully, I had just enough white Cambridge Lawn (my favorite lawn solid) to put together the top.


The first version of this quilt was made with a rainbow of vintage sheets, so it's unsurprising that it looks so nice in a rainbow of Liberty of London lawn prints!


For the quilting, I thought it would be fun to play off the star design, so I chose a loopy star design. The quilting was done by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting. I sent along Quilter's Dream Orient batting, which is perfect paired with the airy lawn fabrics!


For the backing, I used a variety of liberty lawn yardage from my stash. At one time I had grand plans to make lots of lawn garments, but in all honestly these prints are a little for my wardrobe. They make a beautiful backing though!


I had a bit of trouble deciding on binding, but ultimately went with this pretty gray and orange floral liberty print. I wanted something that would look good with the scrappy backing and the rainbow front. This print had been in my stash for a while, so it worked out well in the end!


Finally I was able to photograph one of these star quilts on a barn! The design was inspired by barn quilts, so it seemed very fitting.


You can find the tutorial and pattern for this quilt below. Pattern version includes a baby quilt and pillow, in addition to more color options.
