I’m so excited to share two new patterns with you today: Star Crossed Pines and Twirlity. I have a soft spot for both of these easy-to-make quilts. I hope you’ll consider adding them to your pattern library.
First up is Star Crossed Pines, a 74 1/2″ x 80 1/2″ quilt featuring alternating scrappy stars and two-toned trees. Although it has a Christmas time feeling, I think this quilt could grace your home all winter long.
Rather than using Christmas fabrics, I chose some of my favorite red and green prints from two different collections by Fig Tree & Company for Moda: Chestnut Street and Coney Island. For the binding, I used the red gingham from Strawberry Fields Revisited. Don’t they all play nicely together?
My friend Barb (Quilts on Broadway
) selected a subtle but festive holly berry pattern for the machine quilting. I just love it. Thanks, Barb! I honestly can\’t wait to whip this quilt out the day after Thanksgiving!
My other new pattern is called Twirlity. This sweet quilt was truly a labor of love for me, as I made if from a stash of Penny Rose
and Riley Blake
fat quarters I had been hoarding. Several of the prints are from one of my favorite Penny Rose designers, Elea Lutz
. You’ll likely see some of your favorites too!
Twirlity measures 64 1/2″ x 76 1/2″ and is fat quarter friendly! You\’ll need eight fat quarters (I pulled aqua, orange, purple, brown, rose, blue, green, yellow), as well as two border/background fabrics and one neutral background fabric.
Once again, Barb (Quilts on Broadway
) selected the perfect quilting for Twirlity, a nice meandering loop-d-loop that seems to follow the motion of the twirling pinwheels. We also chose a plush pink backing fabric, making this the perfect cuddling quilt.
If you are interested in purchasing Star Crossed Pines or Twirlity, please visit your local quilt shop or one of my blog sponsors who are carrying the patterns. My Timeless Day is also offering kits in other fabric collections! Thanks Allison!
