Happy hump day, people! Today is my stop on the Star Crossed blog hop. Star Crossed is a new quilt pattern my friend Krista just released. Krista blogs over at Sew What’s Cooking. She is always busy sewing and cooking. I don’t know how she finds the time to make patterns!
The patterns she’s designed so far are on her Four Robbins Designs website. Talented lady! You can find this new Star Crossed pattern available right now for purchase on Craftsy here.
It is a fresh modern take on the traditional Ohio Star and Irish Chain blocks.
This is Krista’s finished Star Crossed quilt! I’ve always had a soft spot for the Irish Chain and it looks fantastic combined with the Ohio Star. Plus, I like the fabrics she chose to make hers with. I really do enjoy a traditional looking quilt done in a clean and light manner. It’s right up my alley. However, this Star Crossed quilt could be done up in a variety of different print and/or solid combinations. Very versatile.
The pattern instructions are clear and thorough. It provides the details you need to make this quilt in four sizes — baby, crib, throw and queen. There are four block designs and each measures 12″ finished. The blocks in the pattern could easily be adapted to other quilt sizes or for other projects like pillows.
I was so bummed I didn’t have the time available when Krista needed pattern testers but she has been so kind to give me two PDF copies of the Star Crossed pattern. One for me and another to share with one of you.
