Berenstain Star

It seems like I am in the middle of babypalooza right now – everyone is having babies ( and mine is only 5 weeks old) or has close friends having babies.  This means I seem to be making a lot of baby items these days.  The latest finish is heading off to a coworker of my Mom.  The Mom to be grew up reading the Berenstain Bears so it was easy to pick the fabric – the pattern on the other hand took some time to figure out.  Finally upon playing around on the Moda Bakeshop I found a great pattern I loved – Storybook Star.  I do love the incredible number of great free patterns on the Moda Bakeshop and they have great ideas for precuts.

The front uses a charm pack I had from Welcome to Bear Country and the backing is from the second Berenstain line – Bear Country School.  The green dot fabric is from Riley Blake and I love how well it goes with the other fabrics in the charm pack.

The quilt came together quickly and I quilted it straight line stitches inside the star and a simple stipple outside to try and highlight the star.  I love the straight line quilting and would do the entire quilt this way if I ever did it again.

The future owner of this quilt is due to arrive in early August, so I have a few days to figure out what to put on the label before I send it off!  Then I have 2 more baby quilts to make for fall arrivals!
