Hello, Star Crossing pattern!

I'd like to introduce you to my new quilt pattern, Star Crossing. 

This pattern is a good 9 months in the making. I designed it from digital swatches before the fabric was printed. The fabric became available in May, right around the time that our family started packing up our house for a year-long move to Florida. So I packed the fabric. In the "not-essential-and-therefore-arriving-in-FL-in-2-weeks" box. Which became 3+ weeks. Oops.

And let me tell you, I was itching to get this quilt made. When the fabric finally joined us in the Sunshine State, I cut and stitched Star Crossing in about three evenings. And here it is. (Now to quilt it...)

To make the Star Crossing quilt, I used Hoodie Crescent's Ring Ring collection from Paintbrush Studio. I love the vintage feel of these prints! The color palette and print selection are both broader than what you see here, but I picked three prints each of four different colors (pink, blue, green, and orange) to make this quilt. I may be a right-brained creative type, but I do like to keep my colors neat and orderly! :) 

 Love the adorable selvedge on these prints! (And my new Olfa rotary cutter and cutting board!)

All the pieces, cut and ready to be stitched.

The quilt in progress--cute little 6" square star blocks, one of three different sized star blocks in this quilt. I purposely aligned the prints so the pencil stripe would be pointing "out" in all the star points.

I also designed a free quilt pattern featuring Hoodie's Ring Ring collection for Paintbrush Studio. It's called Linked Up and you can download it here.
