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.

  1. I really do love that pattern, it would be a challenge for me since I’ve only done regular squares and strips so far, being a newbie.

  2. “I really do enjoy a traditional looking quilt done in a clean and light manner” – I agree completely, for me to like a traditional design it needs to be exactly that – light, fresh, with an uncluttered background that lets you appreciate the design rather than being overwhelmed with a zillion different prints. Her quilt fits that description perfectly.

  3. Lovely quilt! It would be great in so many different color combinations and could easily look modern or traditional, depending on the fabrics.

  4. It’s going to be in the low 70’s on this side of the state tomorrow but right now the temp is dropping, the wind is howling and the rain is coming in sideways. My cat Cricket is having a fit because she wants to go out but doesn’t like wind, rain or cold and every time I open the door for her to go out it’s all hitting her smack in the face. It’s really kind of funny watching her get a look of disgust on her face and then look at me as if it’s my fault. P.S. Love the quilt.

  5. I love your pattern and the colors you chose are perfect. I am from Birmingham,Alabama and living in Calera. It’s only one county away. I like it here, more country style. Thanks you for this chance.

  6. Newbie also. The pattern is right up me alley. I love the star patterns. Being that it’s a version of the Ohio Star, I’m in love because I’m from Ohio. I agree different fabrics make a big difference. Thanks for the chance to win a pattern.

  7. Tell you something…. well, so many folks are tired of snow but not me! Snow means potential time off work and more sewing time. Spring means mowing and weeding. I should move to Canada! The quilt is pretty, love the color choices too.

  8. I do like the pattern, but I think the fabrics she chose make it perfect, especially the blue in the chains – seems to give it movement. Thanks for a chance to win!

  9. Love the Star Crossed Quilt. Thanks for the chance to win…I’ve been looking for a great pattern to make my next quilt…

  10. Love your blog!! This quilt is really pretty too! The colors are perfect! Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. Beautiful quilt. I am looking for something different to make a wedding quilt and a pattern that is not too hard to do.

  12. I love the Star Crossed pattern and was upset that some of the other blogs had already closed their giveaways. Crud! I knew I could count on you to give us all a chance!

  13. I too am a big fan of the traditional Ohio Star and Irish Chain blocks. Krista really did a lovely job of creating a beautiful quilt! I would love to win this pattern.
