Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2014

Spring '14 Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.com

If you are a follower of my blog, you’ve seen my quilt a few times.  If you are new, welcome!

I wanted to share this quilt for Blogger’s Quilt Festival first because I love it and then also because it’s the first official pattern I’ve written.  I think it is such a fun and versatile pattern and I’ve enjoyed each time I’ve made it – which I think now is four times!

The pattern is called Star Crossed.  You can find more of my current and upcoming patterns on my Four Robbins Designs website.    Star Crossed is a take on the traditional Ohio Star and Irish Chain blocks and the design includes four separate blocks.  The pattern includes directions for four different sized quilts, but the quilt below is the throw size.  The fabrics I used were  Baby Jane by Eric and Julie Comstock for Moda and Bella Solids Ivory.

And here is the back.  I had a lot of fun putting the back together and even incorporated my first quilt label.

I also made it a few more times!

Here it is in April Showers by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.

And my test blocks using random fabrics from my stash.  This first one featured really big blocks but I redesigned it to the smaller blocks.  I’d like to make a big block version of it later for our guest bed.

These were my test blocks after I resized the blocks.

And I have to say it is so exciting to see your quilt design through another quilter’s eye.  I had some fantastic testers who came up with different color variations.  I love each one of them and love how the different fabric choices and combinations can make the quilt look modern or traditional.

Here is the twin size by Zrinka of Owls & Co.

The whole experience of designing, making, and sharing this quilt and working with other wonderful quilters has been so gratifying.  It really was a joy.  And thank you for visiting and letting me share it with you!
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy looking at all the beautiful quilts by so many wonderful quilters featured in this spring’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  And thank you to Amy’s Creative Side!Krista
