I apparently forgot to announce it though. My marketing needs some serious work!
I really, really love this design. You can't accidentally cut off the points in this star block, so it is very forgiving. The sashing is actually built into the large blocks so there are no long sashing strips to measure and sew. And if you like to nest your seams to help match corners, this pattern makes it easy. Detailed pressing instructions help you nest every seam that needs to nest.
I designed it for my own bed several years ago, and revisited the design for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary quilt last year.
Here's what Kathleen, one of my wonderful testers had to say about the pattern:
"I loved this pattern. Originally I thought it too wordy but as I went along I found it so organised and clear. The cutting charts were accurate and easy to follow and I loved that you showed pressing directions - all seams nested perfectly. This is a fantastic pattern..."Thank you so much for being a tester, Kathleen! I am also grateful to Judy J., Louise, Lora Garrison, Jeanne Holmes and Judy MacLeod. Please drop in tomorrow to see pictures of their versions.
In the meantime, please spread the word that the pattern is now available . Ask for it at your favourite quilt shop (they can order directly from me or from distributors Checker or Brewer) or pop over to my Etsy shop to buy a PDF download.
