Stretched Stars To Go Quilt

I just finished the Stretched Stars To Go Quilt. I used a green and orange/yellow fabric pack from JoAnn's. You can find the free AccuQuilt Go pattern over here. This is a great way to test out your 4.5" die that comes with the AccuQuilt Go Cutter. You can also make the entire quilt with a rotary cutter and ruler.
I used a Stars panto from Debra Geissler for the machine quilting. I used a very light yellow quilting thread and Hobbs 80/20 bleached batting.
I love the stretched stars with quilted stars. This is such a fast quilt to make and definitely a beginners friendly pattern.
I used this old green checked fabric from my stash for the backing.
I made the two borders wider than the pattern said. I decided to use the same fabric from the outer border for the binding.
Binding is all done!
I am so pleased at how this simple and fast little quilt turned out.
Here is another blue pack of fabric from JoAnn's. Wouldn't a two colored blue and white Stretched Stars To Qo Quilt be beautiful?
Thank you so much for all the comments on my Go giveaway. I am so sorry for not coming back to all of you. I will use a random number anyone can be the winner. The Go giveaway will close on Saturday morning. I wonder who the lucky winner will be!

Happy Quilting until next time!
