Virtually Be Quilted - My Turn!

June was my month to send fabric out to the Virtually Be Quilted participants. I asked the participants to make a star block out of the fabric provided. (Additional fabric could be added if desired). The blocks that I receive back will be combined with some 'setting blocks', which I will create, and will be turned into a quilt for Ruby.

Ruby's quilt will be based on the Star Quilt Along that was run by AmandaJean from Crazy Mom Quilts. The star blocks will be different to those used by AmandaJean, however I will use the same pattern for the 'setting blocks', which provide the diagonal lines in the quilt.

The colour scheme is pink and purple on a white background. I have been collecting fabrics for this quilt for about a year. I had around 12 fat quarters, which I turned into fat eights. Each person received two coloured fabrics and some white material for the background.
And here are the beautiful blocks that I have already received. I love them!

Just beautiful! Sorry I missed it.

If you need any help with the assembly, feel free to ask!
