There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!
The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.
The North Star is fixed in the heavens directly about the North Pole. While every other star is on a perpetual journey across the sky, the North Star holds its place with perfection. Centuries before the advent of location technology, sailors, travelers, and escaped slaves depended on that steadfast star to guide the way.
This week’s new project is the North Star. Click HERE to fall in love with a quilt as timeless as the star itself!
Hamilton is buzzing with excitement for Monday’s solar eclipse. Our little town is right in the “path of totality,” so for a few minutes, the moon will completely cover the sun. And when it does, the sky will get so dark, we’ll be able to see stars!
Today we’re stitching up our own little stars for The Rhombus Star Quilt. This pretty quilt is made using our Rhombus Template – and you know we love finding new uses for our favorite templates!

Ask a scientist, and she’ll tell you exactly what the stars are: burning-hot gases like hydrogen and helium. (Not quite as romantic as diamonds in the sky.)
But if you ask Jenny, she’ll show you how to make your own twinkling stars out of the simplest quilting ingredients: half-square triangles and 4-patches.
Isn’t it darling? Which fabrics will you use to create this adorable star?
