Stars and Sharks Quilt {Free Pattern}

Hi there! Today is my stop on the Sharktown blog tour!  This Sharktown fabric by Shawn Wallace is so much fun and is the perfect fabric for those shark lovers in your life! :)  I loved how this fabric line had a great range of dark, medium and light blues.  So I thought it would be fun to do a gradient pattern - so I came up with this fun Stars and Sharks quilt:

Stars and Sharks Quilt Kit HERE      SOLD OUT
 45" x 45"

I started with the darkest fabric - which is absolutely adorable! I think this is my favorite print in the collection! 


I then worked my way out with and used lighter blue each time.   This is a super easy quilt - and you can easily whip up the top in an afternoon - which is my favorite part! I love quick quilts!




For quilting, I used my walking foot and did 1/2" lines and followed the lines of the star.  I love straight line quilting so much - however it is very time consuming! I forgot how much time it takes to straight line quilt.  But I love how it turned out and I love the texture straight line quilting adds to the quilt! 

Lastly, I used a stripe for binding!  My binding fairy is the BEST - I wanted to do bias binding - and I LOVE how it turned out! She did a fabulous job! (Thanks mom!) ;)
