Many many many moons ago, I bought a beautiful fat quarter bundle of Piper by Dear Stella from the Fat Quarter Shop. I just fell in love with this bundle mostly because it had my two favorite colors, purple and green, but because it had such fun prints! I really have no idea why I let this bundle sit so long.
So while this pretty little bundle sat in my stash, I was still day dreaming about Jeni Baker's Giant Star quilt and couldn't get it out of my head. I even made my Giant Star Surround quilt to feed my giant star quilt craving. Guess what? That is like only eating one oreo. Not going to happen! So one day while I was petting my stash and admiring my Piper fabrics, it hit me....make a Giant Star quilt with Piper! And use Linen! And call her....
I did a very dense swirl quilting pattern and it was super fun, but boy my arms were sore!

I used the remaining FQ's and some quilter's linen for the back. I was thinking I would use that originally for the front but it was too light for my liking and I loved the natural hues in the flax seed linen. I used the last little bit of Piper to make a two print scrappy binding. Big relish thought the print with all the tiny dots were sprinkles! Gotta love her!
Also, if you want to see some more Piper in action, Paula over at The Sassy Quilter is also working on a Piper quilt. I cant wait to see Paula's when it's finished! Go on over there and cheer her on!
Hope you have a great weekend!
