Attractive scrappy stars are perfect for your living room decor, especially at Christmastime. With a soft minky backing this quilted throw blanket is perfect for snuggling! The minky backing also makes the quilt a little heavier than a quilt with a cotton back; so it will feel a little like a weighted blanket.

Generously sized at about 72 x 78 inches (183x198 cm) it is suitable for adults and kids alike.

Quilting is done with a freemotion feather design. This means freehand machine stitching, not computer. Binding is attached by machine for added durability.

All aspects of the quilt, from fabric choice to cutting, stitching, quilting and finishing, were completed by myself, in my rural Ontario home. (smoke and pet free)

Additionally, I have washed this quilt once so that you don't have to be intimidated by the laundering process. It is preshrunk, colorfast, and fabrics are soft and pliable with that 'crinkly' look that is typical of an old fashioned, well loved quilt.

Shipped with insurance and tracking.


I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!


I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.
