Sewing Patchwork Baby Blanket

Sewing Patchwork Baby Blanket

I decided to learn some patchwork. As usual, I don't start with easy projects - I seem to make my life difficult and go for the more difficult or advanced patterns, not for a beginner. Oh, well. I really fancy learning to sew a start-type patchwork, for my little star. I drew up a patter on a paper, did some measurements and off I went - the result was a patchwork star, albeit not a perfect one. In my eyes, it was perfect. The size of the block was about 16", and I padded it up with some cabin log style patchwork around it. I used up about 4 fat quarters (with lots of leftovers). I cheated a bit in terms of quilting it, as I used some old blanket to put this cotton patchwork block on top of it, and just quilted around the edges.
