Who doesn't like stars?

So as I was looking for ideas, I came across my little stash of Missouri Star Quilt Company's  

BLOCK magazines

I saw this pattern and loved it.

I ordered this  Rhombus ruler and loved it.

I loved it so much that I made two quilts but the second one will have to wait for it's appearance another time.

I used the Island Batik 5" stash builders, this strip was totally perfect for this ruler.  Unfortunately Island Batik no longer carries these 5" strips.  POOOOOORRR ME!!

Aurifil white 50 weight thread

Hobbs Black batting
Black Heirloom 80/20 Batting King Size Hobbs

I have to say, there was no shadowing of the seams at all or any stray threads that happen to show through after quilting..  I did enjoy using this batting 

Now......this was not my first idea for this months challenge so.....

 tomorrow I will show you that quilt.

What a pretty quilt. You were sure fast getting it done for the August challenge.

When I next need batting I think I will be adding black to my list.

Great job on these stars. Amazing that you made a few star quilts this month!

A Star is born! Lovely!

I really like your Star Light Star Bright quilt. But then, I am a huge lover of star quilts. I think my first Island Batik Ambassador quilt was tiny stars. (Grin) I may have another star quilt to share soon.

It always amazes me how a fabric print (or lack of) can drastically change the appearance of a quilt design. I had to get over here to have a look-see at the other star quilt you made with that special ruler. Same pattern, drastically different looking. Whaaa? used black batting behind white fabrics? Do I understand this correctly? I can’t even comprehend the logic in that. LOL
