Star Cakes quilt blocks

For my own version using this pattern I used Fig Tree Quilt’s newest Moda collection, Farmhouse paired with Moda Bella Solid in cream (sku 9900-11). I love how the cream, paired with the warm colors of the collection, it makes such a warm quilt. And I really love that black thrown in there. Feels autumn-ish  to me.

Farmhouse yardage arrives in fabric stores this month. I’m excited to get yardage so I can add outside borders and get this quilt finished for fall.

I love a good scrappy-looking quilt and this pattern is a fun way to get an easily coordinated scrappy look using a collection of 10″ pre-cut squares.

You can watch the full pattern tutorial right here (click above) or click over to the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube channel.


Coinciding with this new video quilt pattern/tutorial the Fat Quarter Shop is having a special where all Layer Cakes are 20% off for 3 days only (Monday, Sept 7th through Wed Sept 9th). Enjoy!

    What a fun block! I need to make a quilt for my granddaughter, but I bought a jelly roll thinking I would make a scrappy quilt. Now I wish I had a layer cake. Oh well. I guess I’ll just *have* to buy more fabric.

    I would love to win the Applique book by Alison Glass. Mad about Patchwork has a good selection of books–many of which I already own. And you are absolutely right–Pam does offer great customer service. I encourage your readers to try her shop.

    Love this quilt…and your fabric selection, too!!
    Cannot wait to see it all finished….looks like it would go together easily, with all those half square triangles!

    Lovely quilt with the cream and the black. Fig Tree always puts out great fabric lines.

    The black is the greatest, right? I normally am not a fan of these colors but I just adore this collection. The black really does something for it

    That is such a fun quilt! I have lots of precuts in my stash and this is a great tutorial on how to use them.
