Starry Eyed quilt in Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine

I received some fun mail a couple of days ago - the latest issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine (Issue #86).  I always look forward to getting each new issue - but this one was special.... inside is one of my very own quilts, Starry Eyed!  

Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine Issue 86


Starry Eyed is a star sampler quilt, perfect for beginners wanting to learn new piecing skills, or for any quilter who loves star blocks (like me!)

This quilt is made of eight different star blocks, but don't let that intimidate you - if you can make half square triangles and flying geese, you're all set!

I started working on this quilt last November and December but wasn't able to share it until the issue was released recently.  These spring colors are so perfect for this time of year!  

The photo below is one that I snapped of the quilt before boxing it up and shipping it to the magazine.  The finished quilt measures 59" x 81" which is a great large throw size.
