I’d been working on this quilt for a while and after a few revisions I finally got it to where I envisioned it…and now I’m so happy to share my latest pattern, Twinkly Stars.
Twinkly Stars is a PDF downloadable pattern available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
About the pattern—it’s written for 4 different quilt sizes: crib, small throw, large throw and twin size. There’s a lot of things about this that I’m excited about, first of all, what you can do with color. I chose very vibrant colors but…
I think it would look great reversed, low volume stars with a dark background. I have my fabric pulled and plan to make a small throw using that color combo. And how about red, white and blue? Endless possibilities.
My favorite thing about this pattern is there is very little waste. And here’s why—the sashing is made from the cut away corners from the stars. I’m not one for waste so it’s a great way to use almost everything.
Twinkly Stars is good option for the beginner quilter as it offers skill building in chain piecing, using half square triangles and more. You’ll notice that the star is modern so if you like star quilts it’s definitely a fresh, new option. Also, it’s a traditionally pieced quilt, no paper piecing or templates. 🙂
I’m off to quilt the crib size quilt I made out of solids. In the mean time, I hope to see some Twinkly Stars in my near future!
