Comfort & Joy Blog Tour: Star of Wonder Quilt {a pattern hack!}

Today I’m so happy to be sharing my latest quilt finish as part of  Riley Blake’s Comfort and Joy blog tour.  This Christmas line is great with the classic red and green but the addition of aqua and black made it too cute for me to resist.  When designing a quilt to use with these fabrics, I kept going back to my Star of Wonder tree skirt and table topper pattern, but really wanted a quilt instead of a tree skirt.  So, after a little pattern hacking, I came up with this design that reminds me of a wreath.

The red swiss dots as a background might be my favorite thing about this quilt.  I’m a sucker for dots!

We took the quilt to my parents house for photos because they have awesome light in all of the rooms of their home. Look how perfect it looks on their table!

But my favorite photo is this one on the back of their sofa. After the photo session was over, it was decided that this quilt needs to live at their house because it just goes so well with all of their furniture. 🙂
