Blogger’s Quilt Festival: Leslie in the Sky with Diamonds

Happy Friday, friends!

My second entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival is vastly different than my By Your Side Quilt.


I made this one over the course of a year as a Christmas gift for my sister. It was all about the process on this one- experimenting with techniques, playing with color. I took my inspiration from the way my sister created a mural in her bedroom- bit by bit over time as she felt inspired, with lots of different-looking elements that blend together. My only guidelines were the color palette (I pulled all my fabrics before starting) and that I wanted lots of night skies and stars. You can see my original post about making this quilt here.


This one is so removed from my own style, but my husband paid me a huge compliment when it was on my design wall and he said, “Even if you hadn’t told me, I would know this was for your sister.” Because it was for her, I made sure it was something that she would enjoy. A couple of times over the last year, I’ve gotten texts from her with pictures of different parts saying, “I just noticed this!” I love that she’s still discovering new things after so many months.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sewing, ~L
