Rainbow Star Modern Mini Quilt


As soon as I read about the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I've been fascinated with lone star quilts for a long time, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it. As a beginner quilter, there were a lot of challenges for me in this project. It was my first time working with diamonds and my first time sewing Y-seams. Luckily I managed to figure it all out and come up with something I absolutely love! The finished size is 30" square.

Here are some close-up shots showing the details:


Red stitching around the points and rainbow binding.

Stitching in the ditch to outline the star shape.

And matching polka dots on the back!
