Starlight Converging – Quilt Pattern And Blog Hops

starlight converging paper piecing pattern

Pattern is available on Craftsy and Etsy

I was going to share the violin quilt pattern today as I had already finished drafting the pattern last week.  But then the weekend happened and new ideas popped into my head and I never even got to sew the block.  So I am moving the violin to next week and sharing a brand new star quilt pattern called Starlight Converging.  The hardest part of this pattern was coming up with its name!

I finished it Monday night so I could take it to my quilt group meet on Tuesday.  I am going to quilt it with color-matched thread – I haven’t decided if I want to machine-quilt or hand-quilt it.

It’s an easy pattern to make.  You can pick up Starlight Converging quilt pattern from Craftsy or Etsy.

Lord Of The Rings Block Of The Month

There are a couple of other events I am participating in next year that I wanted to share with you.  My friend Lilja is hosting a Block Of The Month on Lord Of The Rings at Fandom In Stitches and I am one of the designers.  How exciting is that!!  I started designing my pattern already and can hardly wait to see what the others will be making!  I will keep you posted as the day gets closer.

 My Favorite Block Quilt Along @ Persimon Dreams

I am also joining My Favorite Block Quilt Along at Persimon Dreams.  I am going to write a tutorial on my favorite method of course, paper piecing.  My day is 4th of April.  I am sure I will end up with designing a new block for this event.

 

There are so many great blocks that popped up in the Flickr group for the Something Wicked This Way Comes blog hop.  Here is the first finished quilt-top by Littledaintylady made from those blocks.  She did such a fabulous job!!!

Back to the sewing machine I go!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!

    Love your starburst pattern! soooo pretty. One suggestion: When sewing white to intense colors (even pink and yellow) cut the seam allowances at different sizes so the white is larger and covers the color, and that will prevent the color being seen through the white.

      Thank you so much!! I didn’t know about the seam allowance. I will definitely do that next time since it’s not always easy to press toward the dark side with paper piecing.

    I love your colourful block and lyyledaintylady’s quilt looks great :)

  4. Its gorgeous.. I just bought it. I just did another Star, which I hate sewing stars but it was a pp one, it is literally 2 stitches for each block, this one will look great with it. I hope its easy as you say… I am going to do some hand stitching myself.

      Thank you so much Shirley!! Hope you enjoy making this one. I thought it was quite easy with paper piecing, 3-4 stitching per section. I am tending toward hand stitching too.
