Asterisks Quilt Pattern Release Day

Asterisks Quilt Pattern Release Day

Hi friends!

My newest pattern Asterisks is now available and I am beyond excited!! The Asterisks quilt is a great beginner friendly pattern with a midcentury modern vibe. I wanted to give you, the maker a bit of flexibility when making this pattern so I included a few different options for making the quilt - we can call it a “choose your own adventure quilt”.

For example:

  • For the asterisks you can choose from all 1-color, multi color (like the one shown above) or scrappy asterisks (this is a great way to use your scrap bin)

  • For the background you can choose from a solid 1-color background or make it scrappy

Below we have an example of 1-color asterisks with 1-color background, multi color asterisks with 1-color background and 1-color asterisks with scrappy background

Depending on the fabrics and colors you use, there are so many different looks you can get with this quilt!
  • Choose a bold color palette like the cover quilt for a fun pop in any room of the house.

  • A red white and blue palette would make for a fun fourth of July quilt - the asterisks can be stars or fireworks.

  • Any background with white asterisks can be used as a winter quilt - the asterisks can be snowflakes.

Asterisks Sample Quilts

Below are a few of the samples I made during the testing phase - I really like to go a bit bonkers with how many quilts I make before I send the pattern to testers to look over. I will share a blog post for each quilt in the next couple of weeks giving you info on how I quilted them and also fabric information.
