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.
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. This quilt is only for the truly star-studded star quilt fans (-: A group of us did this pattern as a quilt along last spring and there were some amazing versions made! 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.
Don’t forget! Enter for your chance to win the Stars issue of Curated Quilts. If you haven’t seen this beautiful publication, don’t miss it. Published quarterly, each issue features a theme and is full of inspiring quilt imagery, news on products, and patterns. <<learn more about it>>
I’ll pick the winner and announce it next week.
Meantime, show me your stars!
