Simple Stars Baby Quilt

For a quick-to-make baby quilt, set off eight star blocks with vertical-print sashing strips. Strips fussy-cut from a border print make up the top and bottom middle border. Fabrics are from Richard Neuman’s Choo Choo You collection and Kinkame’s Toy Poodle collection, both from Clothworks.
