Sailor's Star Pattern!

Happy almost weekend, y'all!  If you're looking for this week's NTT, it is still going on right HERE!
I don't know about you, but here in West Tennessee, we have been blessed with some truly glorious weather lately.  Those of you who are in Florida, this Louisiana girl feels your pain.  I have lived through my share of hurricanes, and I hope Matthew moves through as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Lately, I've been burning the midnight oil to put the finishing touches on my Sailor's Star pattern, and I'm happy to report that it is now available in my Etsy and Craftsy shops!

The star blocks have the beautiful shape of a compass rose, but one of the best parts of this quilt pattern is the secondary pattern that emerges in the negative space.  The graceful curved illusion is so pretty and fresh, and that space is perfect for showing off your mad quilting skills.  Best of all, this quilt is made with straight piecing only, so it's perfect for all you curve chickens like me.

The pattern is written in Lap, Twin, and Queen sizes, and includes cutting diagrams, as well as full color illustrations for almost every single step.  If you're looking for a star quilt with some pop, give this one a try!


  1. Very nice!! We've been having great weather the last few days as well. I agree that Matthew needs to move out quickly, without too much more damage.

  2. Love this pattern, but it has to go on the bucket list for next year. Congrats on a gorgeous pattern.

  3. Beautiful pattern, Kelly!! The fabric choices work so well together and create good contrast.

  4. Gorgeous pattern! Love the design and the beautiful fabrics!

  5. Beautiful pattern (and quilt) Kelly. I love that pattern so much.

  6. Kelly, I also love this quilt and the pattern you designed. I wish I could find the triangle in a square rulers that you used, but when I went onto, it doesn't look like they carry them anymore. I'll keep looking. Take care, Mary.

  7. Such a beautiful pattern and I love the fabrics that you used.
