Star of Light quilt

Mary and I have been working on Star of Light Christmas Cards as a holiday special for our August Mini Session subscribers!  But, while playing with the set, I noticed that this image looks like the pattern on a hand-made quilt that my husband’s grandmother made us for a wedding gift and wondered if it would work!  I think it did!  What do you think?  Look like a quilt?


Star of Light quilt

I went with Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate for my quilt pattern.  I love those colors for a bedroom…so fresh and clean looking!  Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Daffodil Delight, folded in half.
  • Across the front is a 1-1/2 x 5-1/2 strip of Neutrals Designer Paper Pack in the Smoky Slate color.
  • A 1/4 x 5-1/2 strip of Gold Glimmer paper adds a little shimmer…I thought the Silver Glimmer looked lost on it.
  • On the 3-1/2 x 3-3/4 rectangle of Whisper White, the star image was stamped with Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Inks.  TIP:  Measure and put a pencil mark at the half way point on each side, then line up the tips of the stars with them and each other.
  • Layer onto a 3-5/8 x 3-7/8 piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.  Add to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add the Shine greeting from Star of Light stamp set with Memento Black Ink.


Isn’t that fun?  I love when I can use a stamp set for a purpose other than the intended use.  Now I can use this set for any occasion throughout the year!
