Hi everyone! I am back from Asia and ready to get back into quilting.
To kick it off, this is Star Gazing. I’ve mentioned this once or twice but this is the first picture. A few years ago, I worked at a quilt shop and we did sampler after sampler BOMs before we said “I can’t do another sampler quilt!” which was when we (mostly Swan) started designing our own BOM. Typically, Swan designs, Kathie figures out how the heck to construct what Swan came up with, and then I do the graphics on the computer. Here is our newest, Star Gazing.
Right now, we have draft 1 for all of the patterns written up with pictures. While I was gone, Kathie and Swan were testing and editing. Swan’s version is limited to 8 colors since it’s easier to kit a BOM with fewer colors. But since I’m just doing my own for me, I have no color restrictions, so this is mine in all of its 16-ish color glory. I’m primarily using American Made Solids with a few Kona Cottons when I needed a certain color.
I will be posting pictures of each block. The pattern will be available through either Swan Amity Studios or possibly Quilters Market in Tucson… I’m not sure what the plan is; I just do the technical bits.
