Forever Stars Throw Quilt in Hometown Americana!

This week I finished a Forever Stars quilt in the Throw size.  Oh my, how I love those giant stars!  




The Quilt Kit!


Forever Stars has been kitted in the Throw size by Connecting Threads in their Hometown Americana Vol 3 fabric collection.  This quilt is made from their kit.  This fabric collection is printed on premium Luxe cotton grown in the USA.  It's a lovely collection of muted reds and navys.  The background fabric is a Faux Linen in navy, adding a lovely dimension to the quilt top.   Check out the quilt kit right here.

This quilt top was pieced by my sewist Joanne and quilted and bound by me.



All the Sizes!


The Forever Stars quilt pattern includes all the sizes - 6 in all - Baby Lap Throw Twin Queen and King - so you're covered no matter which size of quilt you'd like to make.  I am all about spoilin' you with many sizes in most all of the patterns I write.



Can You Say "Huge Stars"?


Yep, the stars in this quilt are huge.  I squealed when I first saw this design sewn up, because I couldn't tell on a computer screen how deliciously large the stars actually were.  Really big indeed! That makes for a quilt quilt finish, too!




Longarm Quilting


This Forever Stars quilt is quilted with a waving flag and star design in navy thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher, the perfect complement to the patriotic colors and design of the quilt.






So Many Fabric Options!


Forever Stars is written for four prints plus a background fabric, but you can let your imagination run and discover that this design will look great with each star made from a single fabric, or the entire quilt made from scraps.  I have one of single-colored stars in solids on a gray background cut and ready to go, waiting its turn to be pieced.

Lovely, I really like how you broke up the stars into different colored quadrants. Congratulations on the beautiful finish and new pattern!

I've had this pattern on my wish list for awhile. But first I'm going to make one of your patterns that I've gathered all the fabrics and keep postponing. Soon, hopefully, soon!
