July August Quiltmaker 08

Yea, my Stars In, Stars Out pattern is in this issue. Its always such fun to see one of my designs actually done in fabrics.
I have around 50 graph paper notebooks with designs sketched in them. At approximately 50 pages to each book, thats a LOT of designs.
I love to sit and just draw lines on the graph paper to see what I can come up with. On this pattern it was exciting to see what happened when I made the diagonal seams so that it make a double outline around the stars. then the alternate stars appeared when the blocks went together. I just love it when something good happens in a sketch. There are 4 different sizes given for the quilt, so if you like it, get the magazine and make one. AND send me a picture if you do the pattern.
