I have a fun patriotic quilt to share today! This is Shooting Stars, a new quilt pattern for you!
Of course, Shooting Stars can be made in your favorite colors and doesn't have to be Americana.
Shooting Stars Quilt Pattern
The Shooting Stars quilt pattern is a great way to let a large print focus sparkle as the star points. The oversized floral from the Belle Isle collection is perfect for the points.
The Irish Chain quilt blocks are made with two different fabrics placed in opposite directions in the block and then alternating directions across the quilt top.
Red White and Blue Fabrics!
This Shooting Stars quilt is the Throw size, made in the Belle Isle fabric collection by Minick and Simpson for Moda Fabrics by my professional sewist, Kare. She enjoyed making the large star blocks.
Belle Isle includes florals in several sizes, large, medium, and small, as well as dots, plaids, and tone-on-tones. The background is a very light cream, not quite a true bright white.
Two Sizes Included
The Shooting Stars quilt pattern includes the Throw and Queen sizes, and the design of both sizes is exactly the same with larger blocks in the Queen size. Thus, this is a fairly quick Queen size quilt to make.
This quilt is quilted with Pirouette in cream thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.
