Maybe you remember that I had the privilege to test the alphabet pattern FONTASTIC by Kristy at Quietplay. A group of pattern testers had to try out a selection of words and than send the blocks to her so Kristy could make them part of two charity quilts. I added a little seven pointed star to my package and told Kristy to do whatever she wanted with it. She has now finished the quilt top for the first of two quilts with the test blocks. And my little star rocks on the bottom!
Have a look at these gorgeous photo’s from Kristy!
Did you also spot my WISH block on the top?
I had wanted to draw the paper piecing pattern for this seven pointed star myself, but had not gotten around to do it. (I had used a drawing I found online before.) And when Kristy put my star in the quilt, I felt the need to finally write up my version of the pattern. It is FREE and available in my craftsy store!
So when you just feel like septagon stars or you want to make something that is connected to the Commonwealth, think about this pattern!
Please spread the news that there is another free pattern in my craftsy store!
Hoi Esther, wat een mooie ster, ik zet hem vasr bij mijn favorieten. Die quilt is fantastisch, wat een goed idee!
Hoi Rineke! Heel fijn dat je hem bij je favorieten plaatst, zo krijgt het wat bekendheid he? Bedankt! Zeg, heb je zin om volgende week weer een blok te testen?
