There’s always something going on behind the scenes around here. And I’m excited to finally share one of the projects and collaborations I’ve been working on for the past few months! This month I am the featured artist in the Designer Series collaboration with My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe – and they just released the latest box and quilt this week. This box features 12 prints from the Liberty Quilting collections, London Parks and Emily Belle, plus an exclusive quilt pattern that I designed to go with them!
Meet the Quarter Star Quilt featuring 12 gorgeous Liberty of London timeless prints. You can find the Fat Quarters + Pattern in the latest Designer Collection box here. And you don’t need to be a subscriber to by this individual box.
Update: Currently sold out, but will be available again soon.
The box includes the exclusive Quarter Star pattern, 12 Liberty quilting cotton fat quarters from the London Parks collection, and a cute Lori Holt Busy Bee thread cutter.
(This is my second quilt made with the Liberty Parks collection – here’s the first. You can see I’m a bit of a fan. 😉 )
You can find the finishing kit here including the solid white background fabric + the Watermelon Emily Belle basic print for the binding.
The quilt finishes at 76″ x 76″ – it’s a great throw-size quilt or perfect for a wall hanging if you’ve got a large wall where you like to hang seasonal quilts.
The Quarter Star quilt pattern is brand new and the construction has some awesome shortcuts to help you make your blocks – especially all of those half square triangles – come together so quickly!
I filmed a video tutorial with Kris from My Girlfriend’s to walk you through the steps for making this quilt. There’s also a great intro into the history of what make Liberty prints so classic and iconic.
The quilting pantograph on this quilt is called Flutter by Sew Shabby Quilting.
And for a quick bonus project – you will have some half-square-triangles left over – perfect for making a coordinating throw pillow!
I quilted the pillow top with a layer of batting and then used this method for adding a back and finished binding edge to the quilt.
The Quarter Star Quilt pattern is brand new and exclusive to the collectible Designer Series box.
Thanks so much for having me, My Girlfriends! You can go here to find other Kits and Patterns available from My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe.
