Star Plus Quilt

I saw Claudia's fabulous pattern, Star Plus, a while ago on IG and she was asking for testers - I loved the pattern so much I put my hand up!  






Claudia kindly allowed me an advance copy of the pattern to test and I thought it would make a gorgeous boy quilt with it's graphic look.  I haven't made a quilt just for my son in a long time though he has adopted several and particularly took to the colour scheme of this one!




So when I asked which colours to make his star plus quilt he wanted the same colours!  In fact I have included some of the same fabrics!

Hopefully I have risen to the challenge....






And I have enjoyed everything about it - well perhaps I would be happy to miss out on the HST trimming.   

I love the very graphic block, the different sizes of the blocks and to my surprise I have enjoyed searching through my black, grey and white fabrics.  I was particularly pleased to find a good home for these happy skeletons dancing around the background in this star!  My son has a sense of humour!





And of course I loved adding that injection of dark red.  Just enough I hope!  

Now I'm just waiting for the backing fabric to arrive and then I can finish this quilt off for his Christmas.  This will be on my next FAL list for sure.

As you can see my quilt is quite different from Claudia's quilt and I can imagine some other beauties with this very versatile pattern.   I can thoroughly recommend it and will probably make another more colourful version sometime ....thank you Claudia and wishing you every success in launching your pattern.

This is Claudia's second version in linen and red!

  1. It is a great pattern- very striking and graphic! I have made at least three red, black and white quilts over the years- its a classic palette, isn't it?
