The pattern is Charming Stars from Moda Bakeshop. Such a great pattern for a bee. I was so impressed with how well these blocks all went together. Even with 11 of us picking fabrics from our stashes, there’s still a really lovely cohesiveness to the blocks.
And of course, the back couldn’t be left out. It needed a bit of prettying too!
Added a couple of extra blocks to the back, paired with a nice blue scribbly looking fabric.
And a do.good Stitches label (thank you Leanne) as well. So pleased I remembered to add that in before I started basting hehe! Normally I forget!
All I had to do to the blocks was add some white sashing! Too easy! Put it altogether, rather minimalist quilting (let’s call that my signature style!), and finished with a dark blue binding. Perfect.
This little quilt (or not so little at 65” x 80”) will be going to a family in Tasmania who lost everything during the bushfires. Hoping to get a couple of other quilts to send along too so this one doesn’t get lonely on the journey.
Interested in joining a charity bee? Check out do.good stitches. It’s turning into a huge charity bee with lots of circles all making quilts for a good cause. What can be better than that!

P.S. I didn’t take these photos underwater despite their appearances. I am still trying to find the “good” spots and times of day for taking quilt photos at the new house!
