Elea Lutz, designer for Penny Rose Fabrics (an arm of Riley Blake) has a sweet new book out called Pretty Playtime Quilts. For 16 weeks, the Fat Quarter Shop is hosting a blog tour featuring a new block each week from the Garden Fairy sampler quilt from the book, featuring her latest fabric collection, Strawberry Biscuit. (I’m a big fan of Elea and love her cute, vintage style.)
Not only does the book contain 15 different block patterns for the Sampler quilt but there are also 6 additional quilt/project patterns made from the fun variety of block patterns. It’s a really pretty book full of unique blocks and patterns. (And the fact that it is spiral bound for easy sitting, is a nice bonus!)
Each week the FQS blog, the Jolly Jabber is featuring one of the blocks from the book made by a different quilter. This week it’s my turn to share block 4: the Star Block.
I’m such a sucker for traditional patchwork and loved pulling fabric and putting this Star Block together. The finished size for this block is 12″ x 12″.
There are so many cute, unique quilt blocks in this design. It would be such a fun quilt to make scrappy. Or the Fat Quarter Shop is also selling a Garden Fairy Sampler kit if you would like to make your own using Elea’s Strawberry Biscuit fabric.
You can also see more of the blocks and posts at these blogs on their dates:
