Previously I talked about starting my Jaybird journey with Gazebo. With that done, I’m on to Night Sky.
Like Gazebo, this is much simpler than it looks. Night Sky uses the Sidekick ruler, which has a bunch of lines all over it as well. But once you understand how it works and use it, it’s so simple. (I feel like I’m repeating myself from the last post).
The pattern includes sizes for crib to King which is really nifty because the stars are actually the same size but it’s the “frame” around the stars that change to make the different size quilts. Jaybird doesn’t do y seams so what’s also really nifty is the stars are half hexagons. To put the quilt together, you sew the columns not the rows. So different and cool, right?
The Kona colours used in pattern are not listed in the pattern so I chose my own colour sets. And then I found the colours listed on Jaybird’s website… Oh well. I have the orange, green, and purple stars done, just one more colour left then I can start sewing it together. Although I think I’m going to redo the green ones because I find there isn’t enough contrast between Pistachio and Asparagus.
