Hometown Stars Quilt Pattern - a Baby in Sweet Picnic

Hometown Stars Quilt Pattern - a Baby in Sweet Picnic

I love this part of my job where I have something new and exciting to share with you!  This week I am featuring a brand new quilt design called Hometown Stars!  This pattern includes 8 sizes for you to choose from, so it will fit whatever quilt size you have in mind.  Hometown Stars is the perfect quick and easy quilt pattern that will brighten up your happy home and add a homey-feel to your nest.

The Hometown Stars quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

Meet Hometown Stars!

Hometown Stars quilt design really puts the emphasis on Home in Hometown Stars.  This quilt was made in the Baby size which is also perfect as a table topper or wall hanging.  Star quilts do not have to be red, white, and blue, and can be made with sweet purples, yellows, and reds for a modern farmhouse vibe.

You will be glad to know that Hometown Stars goes together very quickly and easily with large blocks.  In this design, a smaller star bursts inside of a larger star, and the accent border color is pieced right into the blocks.  This design is precut friendly and calls for Fat Quarters or Charm Squares.  You can also cut out Charm Squares from Layer Cake Squares!

Available in 8 Sizes - Qualifies as a Quilt of Valor

Hometown Stars in the Large Throw size qualifies for the Quilt of Valor program, which makes quilts for United States Military Veterans.

If you are looking for a design that you can turn to again and again, then Hometown Stars is the design for you!  Hometown stars is available in 8 unique sizes, so no matter what size quilt you want to make, we've got you covered with this pattern!  I not only love spoiling you with multiple quilt sizes, I also love doing the math for you so you don't have to!  The only thing you need to know in my patterns regarding math is how to count!

Longarm Quilting

I quilted Hometown Stars with the Scribble Flowers design on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher in white thread.  I love how this quilt turned out!  It's absolutely gorgeous!

The Hometown Stars quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

Such Lovely Fabrics!

The prints used are from Sweet Picnic by Riley Blake Designs.  This fabric is so fun to work with!  I've used this fabric from time to time.  For this quilt, I decided to use reds, yellows, and purples from the collection because it allows the quilt to really stand out and make a lasting impression.  You too can turn your Hometown Stars pattern into a stunning modern-day quilt that will get heads to turn!

Layer cakes of Sweet Picnic and the deep purple cherry print for the accent and binding are available in our shop right here.  Background yardage of Riley Blake Cloud is also available in our shop.
