Sew the Stars!

<<update: Giveaway closed, the winner drawn was Linda Douglas. Congratulations, Linda!>>

I couldn’t resist choosing stars as our first week of inspiration for September Sewing. I’ve never met a quilter who didn’t like stars and I’ve never met a star quilt I didn’t like! For this week’s giveaway prize, you have a chance to win all the starry inspiration with the Curated Quilts issue that’s all about STARS (-:

To enter to win, it’s easy, tell me if you’ve made a star quilt and something about it or if you have a favorite star pattern. Extra entry: head over to this week’s post on Color Girl Quilts Facebook and SHOW and tell us about your star quilts in the comments of that post. Be sure and check out others’ star quilts too, there will probably be some great inspiration there!

All week, I’ll share some of the many star quilts I’ve made over the years… It will be hard to choose, there are so many! There are several great star quilt patterns in the shop if you need to get going on your own all-star creation.

Magic star quilt pattern by Color Girl Quilts

One of my all-time favorites is the six pointed star. I love how these also have hexagon in them! Eight points and four points are for sure the classics, especially in traditional quilting. But since they are more unique, six pointed star quilts seem a little extra special. I have two patterns, Magic (above) and Aurora that feature the six pointed star. Both look more complex than they actually are to sew, I promise these quilt patterns are great options for adding six pointed stars to your quilt collection.

If you are ready to go ALL IN for stars, I’ve recently added the full Rise Above workshop series to the shop.

With the full workshop package, you can work at your own pace, receiving all ten video installments of the pattern instructions, the PDF pattern file and all the worksheets to help you with your fabric choices, plus membership in the private FB group to see all the other fabulous quilts.

    I agree, I’ve never met a star quilt I didn’t like! I made a sawtooth star quilt that I love, and hand pieced/quilted a Broken Star quilt that was a 24 year WIP!😅

  2. Julia Cousins says:

    I do love a star quilt! How to pick a favorite? Right now I’m gathering fabrics for an Ohio Star quilt, so that’s my current favorite.

  3. Debbie says:

    Love a good star quilt, I think it’s time to make another!

  4. Diana says:

    So many quilts I have made have a star element! I started learning to sew curves because I was tired of stars! LOL

  5. Kris Jarchow says:

    Stars are so fun. I have made a few of them. One was to honor a tireless hero minister at a local hospital. She worked nonstop with many covid patients over the last year and a half.

    I love star quilts! One of the first quilts I made was a six-pointed star made with 60º triangles cut from 2 1/2″ strips. It was such a fun technique I often think I should re-visit it! Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. Joan says:

    Stars are such a great element to base a quilt on..there are so many ways to use stars ito create great quilts!

  8. Lee says:

    I love the Ohio Star block and it was a part of my very first quilt! I started on this path by hand-piecing and hand quilting a king sized sampler quilt! It’s still together over 30 years later, but currently resting in a closet.

  9. Kristi Castanette says:

    I definitely love star quilts. There is such a large variety of star blocks that I never get tired of making them. My favorite star quilt I made was a scrappy blue and white Irish Chain quilt with blue Variable Star blocks placed in the usual plain white squares. I made it for the tour guide I had on a vacation to Ireland (of course!).

  10. Michelle Ingrassia says:

    Star quilts are some of my favorite. I love them all! The last few star quilts ive made were baby blankets for my neice and nephew. The Expanding Stars quilt by Quilty Love and Pulsar Quilt by Quilting Jet Girl. Stars are great for baby quilts and full size quilts!

  11. meingrassia says:

    Stars are the best quilts, I’ve never met one i didn’t love. They are great for baby quilts and full size quilts. The last star quilt I’ve made were based off the sawtooth star block. They were baby quilts for my niece and nephew. I thought starts were a fitting theme, as they will always be stars in my eyes. The patters were the Expanding Star Quilt by QuiltyLove and Pulsar by Quilting Jet Girl.
