Star Flight quilt

I've enjoyed sharing all of my "secret sewing" from last fall recently, as the quilts I've made for magazines have gone on sale. The most recent is "Star Flight," featured in the August/September 2018 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. 

 is the quilt that inspired the Star Struck design. I'd played around with adding the star to it, but didn't at the time; I'm glad I returned to this design and used the star this time! The quilt looks totally different in the crisp blue and white prints, doesn't it?!

I fell in love with these blue and white prints when I first saw them last summer--the collection is called Fleur de Bleu from Paintbrush Studio. I received the quilt back two weeks ago; just in time to take a photo with the blooming orange tiger lilies in our yard. 

My friend Diane Oakes quilted this quilt for me, and as usual, did a fantastic job! 

I also really love the backing fabric. I wanted to use it on the quilt front, but it was too busy. Instead, I can enjoy its gorgeousness in a larger size on the back! 

Read an interview I did about this quilt for the Paintbrush Studio blog here.
I also created this bargello quilt tutorial here.
