Bloggers’ Quilt Festival–ROYGBIV

Fall Blogger’s Quilt Festival time is here again. This time I am featuring my Jelly Bean Stars quilt, entering it in the ROYGBIV category.   If you have been reading my blog for a while you have seen this one before. If you are visiting for the first time, welcome.

Jelly Bean Stars

This is one of my favourites.  I love the colours.  I love the pieced sashing.  I love that I designed it so that I didn’t have to cut triangles and I couldn’t possibly cut off any points.  I love that I used up little bitty bits of scraps for the string centers.  I love the quilting in the borders, straddling the two different borders with a single motif.  I don’t love that I don’t have it anymore, but I do love the friend it went to, so it’s OK.

This is also the quilt that started me thinking about writing quilt patterns.  It isn’t the first one I wrote up, but it is the one that made me think I should try.  I did write a pattern for Jelly Bean Stars this summer and it is available in my online shop.  Click the "Pattern Shop" tab above to go to the shop.

UPDATE 2019: The Jelly Bean Stars pattern has been reworked into Magnitudes in multiuple sizes. Check out the shop tab

Thank you Amy for organizing and hosting the festival again.
