The StarPlus Quilt Pattern
I am so happy to announce my very first commercial quilt pattern:
The StarPlus Quilt Pattern is now ready for download at craftsy.com!
I love to design my own quilt patterns! And while I did come up with some pretty nice quilts, the amount of positive feedback to the StarPlus Quilt here on the blog and on Instagram was quite a surprise: some people were absolutely smitten with this simple quilt and kept asking for a pattern - and hey presto just one year later I finally managed to publish it :-)
BTW: You can find the first post about this quilt right here. Read all about how the magic happened when I got so bored with all the little blocks that I first added some bigger ones and finally the really big one - and bam!: it did not only got a bit more interesting but also suddenly looked really good :-) Phew!
Here, or better: on Craftsy it is!
The pattern consists of an 8 page PDF download and includes some tips on how to choose fabric for this quilt, a detailed how to cut it and how to piece the top. You do need to have experience with basic quilt making but the pattern really is suitable for beginners as it shows you how to sew just one block in three different sizes.
The Materials you need for the 60 1/2" x 80 1/2" quilt top are:
• 3 yards of Background Fabric (you can save by clever cutting)
• 25 Prints: 1 print 13 1/2" x Width of Fabric, 5 prints 9 1/2 x WOF" and 19 prints 3" x WOF
• 4 yards Backing Fabric
• 1/2 - 3/4 yards for Binding (depending on your favorite method)
• Batting / Wadding of your choice 65" x 85"
• standard cutting, sewing and quilting tools
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. And if you are making or already made a StarPlus Quilt please keep me posted on social media by using the hashtag #starplusquilt and/or send me a picture of your quilt at claudiamachenundtun (at) yahoo (dot) de - I would be so grateful!!
