One of the things that I love most about the quilting community is the openness and willingness to lend a hand or answer questions. In June I volunteered to test Melissa’s (of Sew Bittersweet Designs) new Bursting Lone Stars pattern before she released it. Well today we are celebrating her release day and I am excited to show off my version of her pattern!
I decided to play with solids again and used Modern Solids II, a beautiful cross woven fabric, for the stars and a lightweight chambray for the background. The pattern finishes at 50″ square.
Sadly, I have been struggling with how to quilt this top – which has involved way to much ripping out stitching – so it is currently basted and in progress. I hope to have a completely finished quilt to show off to you soon.
Today Melissa is releasing two new patterns: Flowering Lone Star and Bursting Lone Stars and she has graciously agreed to give away a pattern of your choice.
Congratulations to Janie, who said that she would pick the Flowering Lone Star and use red and white fabrics! Janie, check your email.
