Stars and Sharks Quilt {Free Pattern}

Hi there! Today is my stop on the Sharktown blog tour!  This 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:

 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!) ;)

Alright's let's get started!
