As part of the Star Pulse quilt along, there will be bonus HSTs created during the piecing process. At the end of the quilt along, I will offer a suggested pattern and way to put those bonus HSTs to immediate use in a quilt top. So today, I want to share the Star Pulse throw size bonus quilt that I made to test out the design.
The Star Pulse throw size bonus quilt finishes at 32″ x 40″, and requires a small amount of additional yardage to piece. The additional yardage will be included in the fabric requirements, which will be released at the start of the quilt along on December 1st. The Star Pulse lap size bonus quilt is almost identical (it is basically just missing the last two rows) and finishes at 32″ x 32″.
To quilt the bonus quilt, I simply quilted diagonal lines that are spaced a little under 3″ apart (every other quilted line is in a seam ditch).
And by piecing the backing, I was able to use up pretty much all of the Toscana fabric I received from Northcott. It feels really great to put all the fabric yardage to use into two quilts!
I really can’t wait to get started making my next version of Star Pulse, and I hope you will consider joining me in the quilt along. I will be sharing all the details about how to participate on Wednesday, November 15th.
