Bouquets of roses. Long walks on the beach. Beautiful lines of poetry. There are plenty of ways to sweep a girl off her feet, but if you ask me, Jenny’s son Josh has romance down to an art. He teaches his dates to quilt!
A while back, Josh and his special lady friend stopped by the Sewing Center. They selected a few pretty scraps and stitched up a fun new star block. Talk about a night to remember! Click HERE to learn how to make Josh’s Star!
It’s always fun to see blocks made into other fabrics so here is Josh’s Star made from a Sycamore Layer Cake by Jan Patek for Moda Fabrics. To get this Layer Cake click HERE.

The first star of the evening seems to shine alone for quite some time until, gradually, another twinkle appears in the night sky. Then another and another, until suddenly an endless sea of sparkling stars fills the dark horizon.
Today’s new quilt is a star pattern, and while you work to put together one pretty star, you’ll find that sweet little pinwheels appear as if by magic! Before you know it, those beautiful blocks come together in a stunning display of stars and pinwheels. Click HERE to watch the tutorial.
