Star Systems Quilt Pattern - Elizabeth Hartman
Are you ready to make a quilt using ALL your favourite colours? If so, this is the project for you! Use conventional patchwork piecing with fat eighths, precut 10" squares or your favourite scraps to piece a series of monochromatic "Star Systems" arranged in a striking colour wheel composition.
Elizabeth Hartman sometimes has a hard time narrowing down how many colors and fabrics she wants to put in a quilt, so she designed this 80” x 80” quilt to features ALL the colors! Use fat eighths, precut 10” squares, or scraps from your stash to make clusters of colorful stars using conventional patchwork piecing. The centers of these stars are great places to show off fussy cuts of your favorite fabrics.
OPTIONAL PIECED BACK
The pattern explains how you can use leftover pieces from sewing the diagonal seams in the quilt top to make a stunning pieced quilt back.
BONUS PILLOW PROJECT
The pattern also includes instructions for making a 20” x 20” quilted pillow cover using just one Star System.
The colorful fabrics in her sample are from my Planetarium and Paintbox print collections, and her Planetarium Kona Solid coordinates. The background fabrics in her quilt as Kona Windsor and Snow, and Essex Yarn-Dyed in Indigo.
