This Pixel Star in a Pixel Heart quilt was my son’s idea. I was brainstorming ideas for things I could put in Pixelated Hearts and my son said “Mom, why don’t you sew a Pixel Star in a Pixel Heart?” So I have him to thank for this great idea!
This pattern is available at Daydreams of Quilts, on Etsy and on Craftsy.

I have been making all of my Pixelated heart quilts, which I call Pixel Heart quilts for short, with fabrics from my stash. This one is made with about 95% Bonnie and Camille fabrics from Moda. There are three or four prints from other designers in the background and binding. This quilt is 52 inches square. Adding background squares and/or borders would easily make it larger. I am sewing with what I have so I didn’t have yardage for borders but this is a great size for sitting in a chair or a lawn chair watching the fireworks at summer celebrations.
Some of the prints are nautical and the colours have a nautical feel so we took the quilt to the nearest dock to shoot photos. It’s a local fishing pond so not very glamorous but I think it still added interest to the quilt photos. 🙂
The heart is quilted with stippling in red thread and the star is quilted with big springs going from the corners of the arms of the star to the centre in blue thread. Both these threads are 50 weight and come from the “Simplify” collection that Camille put together for Aurifil.
