Hello and happy Friday! I hope your weekend is off to a terrific beginning! Today I’m sharing a fun and simple patriotic stars quilt my daughter Chelsi made! She used a mix of our fabrics in reds, creams and blues and also wrote a simple tutorial for it. I’ve also got some blog updates and sale information at the end of this post you won’t want to miss.
I believe this bundle of fabrics from our Creekside collection was the inspiration for Chelsi’s quilt. It’s such a great group of fabrics! I’m feeling like I might need to pull these from my stash and start a project!
I just love this! I think it’s a nice mix to have the different shades of blue mixed with all of the different low-volume backgrounds she used. Peeking out on the lower right hand side is a fun star pillow I made last summer.
You can see that this simple patriotic stars quilt is actually a mix of Ohio Star blocks and simple nine-patch blocks which are alternated throughout the quilt. Super simple and fast to piece. The quarter-square triangles are sized up just a bit so you can trim them to size (use this method to trim your blocks).
I really love this quilt! You can find out all of the information for making it on Chelsi’s blog here.
I have a quilt I need to finish up this weekend, and then I think I need to make a few patriotic projects for this year, too! I might just have to start with Chelsi’s Simple Patriotic Stars quilt!
Some other notes:

- I’ve received a lot of emails about why the emails that were sent with each blog post aren’t going out anymore. Because I switched platforms, those emails unfortunately aren’t going out. Subscribe below or in my sidebar to get a weekly email to be sure you don’t miss any posts. Those go out every Thursday morning and seem to be a good option.

- Also, occasionally I change up the rotating post categories on the main page, and I’ve recently put the “Tips” category here. You can easily find the tips posts here.
Finally, a few more of the bundles I shared on Wednesday have been listed in the shop. They are smaller and slightly different from the bundles I showed the other day, but they all provide a fun mix to get started with if you are looking to use them for your Moda Block Heads 2 quilt! Clover Hollow scrap bags are still available with purchase. Just mention the scrap back in the comment section of your order page. Thanks so much for stopping by!
