Confetti Star Quilt - Pinkerville


Hi Quilty friends! I'm sharing my finished Confetti Star Quilt. I think this quilt is quite awesome as it is purple plus has unicorns - a magical combination!!!



Confetti Star is a pattern included that was in my Fat Quarter Shop - Sew Sampler box. I love Tula Pink's Pinkerville fabric so it was a "must make" project for me! 

Fat Quarter Shop Quilting Fabrics and Supplies

Do you make most of the Sew Sampler projects or do add the fabric to your stash for a different project?




I was a bit worried about all the points matching up, but I made sure to use pins so everything matched! Hooray!

Cut Time, Quilt More


The original Confetti Star Pattern is 48.5" x 48.5". I wanted mine larger so I added (3) sets of borders and now it is 66.5" x 66.5". Border 1 (white / mist) cut at 2.5" , Border 2 (Seabreeze) cut at 3.5", Border 3 (Purple Pinkerville) cut at 4.75". 


I did splurge on the backing for the Pinkerville Unicorn fabric as it was just perfect! Plus lots of unicorns is always the best answer!


Confetti Star Quilt - supersize version 66.5" x 66.5"

Have you made the Confetti Star Quilt yet??? It was a fun a quilt to make - just be sure to read the directions, double check the angled cuts, and use pins! It will be fabulous when you finish!

My "Remix" A Brilliant Cut Changes
  • Colors - I chose to change to Moda Bella Solids that matched the wedding colors. PS - I'm having an awesome GIVEAWAY on my Instagram account for a Moda Bella Fat Quarter Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop!!!
  • Pillow option - I added a zipper backing so the couple can decide on mini quilt OR pillow.
  • Size - My A Brilliant Cut Mini Quilt / Pillow is a 16"square so I could use a standard pillow insert plus I love the square!
  • Hand Embroidery - I hand embroidered their wedding date with Cosmo Embroidery Floss. I love personalizing gifts!


A Brilliant Cut Mini Quilt is the perfect gift to give that special couple for a wedding or anniversary gift! 

Let's gather up supplies for A Brilliant Cut Mini Quilt

Driving Me Batty Tablerunner


Happy Halloween! I finished my Driving Me Batty Tablerunner just in time- yay!!!  Seriously these bats are too cute - way cuter than my real life experience with a bat ;). 

Fat Quarter Shop Daily Flash Sale


When I saw Fat Quarter Shop had The Spooky Box for sale - I quickly purchased it as their seasonal boxes sell out quickly! I love fabric and happy mail so it was a definite yes for me :). Plus I love decorating my home for holidays so I was hoping for something new to make!


I was so glad that the included fabric bundle was a mix of Riley Blake Designs collections: Fab-Boo-Lous, AND Cats, Bats, & Jacks, AND Blossom - it was perfect. I love non-spooky Halloween and this bundle was perfect! The awesome Drive Me Batty Pattern was exclusive to the box, but Fat Quarter Shop does have the fabric collections available: Fab-Boo-Lous, AND Cats, Bats, & Jacks, AND Blossom.




Seriously the fabrics are too spooky cute!!! The bats were super fun to piece too!!!

For the backing - I used some of my favorite Riley Blake Fab-Boo-Lous and Costume Maker's Ball prints for a fun scrappy backing - yay for sewing with scraps!


To make the Driving Me Batty Tablerunner - I made three not too spooky bats with tiny little blocks in the corner. It's a large tablerunner finishing at 13.5" x 60.5" - I love this size! Check out the included label that was included in The Spooky Box too!


Have a not too spooky Halloween!!!
