Lucky Stars


This is the Lucky Stars quilt from Atkinson Designs; a very fun easy quilt for a beginner.
This is the first quilt I made with triangles. I do think they may be "cheater" triangles though because I didn't actually cut out triangles.
The instructions with this design were extremely easy to follow and very concise. There were detailed instructions on how to rotary cut and piecing in general. Another good aspect of the pattern instructions is that they had little things called "Terry's Tips" which I found very useful, especially if this is one of your first quilts and no one is around to teach quilting.
I love making things with lots of color and this quilt allowed me to do that without it looking terrible. I believe I made the queen size version of this quilt using 42 different fat quarters. I think that's enough color to last a while. The finished size is around 90" x 105".

 Happy quilting!
