I am so excited to share with you about my newest quilt pattern, Sea of Stars. Sea of Stars is now available in my pattern shop as well as my Craftsy shop!
This quilt comes with five size options for your convenience: baby, lap, twin, queen, and king. This quilt pattern was inspired by a tile layout I saw once in a restaurant, and I love the way it looks in fabric.
For the pattern sample, I made a lap sized quilt, using some gorgeous Liberty of London Bloomsbury Gardens prints as the centers for all of my stars. I used some beautiful Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids to pair with the Liberty prints, and I just adore working with the Cotton Couture fabrics!
The quilty photoshoot for this pattern was a bit of a mess - it was the windiest day I've seen in a long time, and I nearly lost the quilt to a retention pond, but thankfully I grabbed a corner of it before it flew away!

I hope you enjoy this pattern, and if you buy one, you'll be pleased to hear that I'll be hosting a quilt-along here on my blog to encourage you to make your very own Sea of Stars quilt! The quilt-along will kick off on November 19th, where I'll share some tips for planning out your fabrics for your quilt, and I'll continue to share tips and tricks on making the pattern for a few weeks, in a leisurely way. Feel free to join in whenever and please don't feel pressured to "keep up" - it's not a race, I'll just be posting regularly to keep myself on track :)
If you have a moment today, pop on over to Amy's Creative Side, where voting has opened up for Bloggers Quilt Festival. My mariner's compass mini is nominated for Best Mini/Doll Quilt, and I'm so honored, I'm in such great company! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
