I wanted to share these photos today- neither of them were taken by me, but they feature the starry sky baby quilt, from pg 26 in my book. The top photo was taken by my friend Arti Badiani, and features her divine daughter Mala. I gave Mala the original starry quilt from my book shortly before she entered the world- so it was lovely to see this picture of her playing on it.
The second photo was sent by a reader, Anna Dawson, who made the quilt and has another top made up, ready to be quilted and bound. I love seeing finished projects from the book.
If you haven't seen the pattern, the idea with the starry sky baby quilt is that you use recycled shirts in blue and red (or any colour of course- but most of the men's shirts I found to recycle were those colours) to make the sawtooth star blocks. I've always loved sewing with men's shirts for their subdued colours, quality and softness. Turning something unused into something much nicer. (And if you don't have any around the house, it's pretty easy to find them second-hand.)
