Patriotic Star Kisses Sew Along

Today, I’m so excited to share with you something I’ve been working on putting together for the last few months. The Patriotic Star Kisses Sew Along is coming next week!I’ve admired Alli of Woodberry Way’s patterns ever since I started following her on Instagram about a year ago, and Star Kisses has always been my favorite.  Here’s her original version. I’ve also always wanted a red, white and blue quilt. So when Rhonda of Olie and Evie Quilts invited me to curate a bundle from her shop for a Sew Along this spring, it was the perfect opportunity to put it all together.  The Star Kisses quilt finishes at 79″x61″ and is the perfect pattern for showcasing your favorite red white and blue prints. It’s easy enough for a beginning quilter and a fun make for a more experienced sewist, too. Here are the fabrics I will be using.  I had so much fun working with Rhonda to curate this bundle, which you can order now from Olie and Evie. Send Rhonda a DM through Instagram if you’re interested in one.

You’ll also need the Star Kisses Quilt Pattern.  Alli has graciously provided a discount code for 30% off the PDF pattern until July 4.  Just enter “STARKISSES” at checkout when you purchase here.

Here’s the Sew Along Schedule:

I’m hoping this laid back schedule will allow lots of folks to join in – even if you only have a few hours per week to devote.  The twelve blocks finish at 18″ and come together really quickly.  I am so excited to have a pretty red, white and blue quilt, just in time for the Fourth of July and summer picnics.

Now, all about this beautiful bundle from Olie and Evie.  I really enjoy scrappy quilts and loved the opportunity to mix it up for this quilt.  The pattern can be made with just  for 12 Fat Quarters, but you can also add 12 Fat Eighths if you would like more variation, which is what I did.  Here are the 24 fabrics included in the bundle I chose, pictured below from left to right.
