Hi quilting friends! I’m moving right along on the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designer Lindsey Weight! I’ve made the fourth star block, which features an inside pinwheel!
I’ve been sewing from my stash, using a combination of fabrics from Fig Tree & Company as well as Bonnie & Camille (both for Moda). Several different fabric collections are represented here, and I’m happy with how well they all work together.
This fun little inside pinwheel that Lindsey designed is just so sweet. I think my secondary blue might be a bit too light, but I just love that pale aqua print from Fig Tree’s Coney Island collection, and I wanted to use it in one of the blocks. We’ll just call the final effect . . . subtle!
This patriotic BOM runs for five months, from January through May. I\’ve included links to Lindsey\’s posted patterns at the end of this blog post. The blocks measure 14\” square and are made using traditional piecing. We’ve made all four of the primary blocks now, but there is still time for you to jump in!
The folks at Fort Worth Fabric Studio have put together a KIT using beautiful Moda fabrics from various designers. The kit includes all material you need to create the quilt top plus binding. They also have coordinating backing you can purchase!
