I finally received my copies of the latest American Quilter Magazine, and now I can share the Movie Star Quilt with you all!
This was the third design I had for Kim @iadorepattern Good Hair Day collection. It’s a nice big one perfect for a bed or couch quilt. I designed the star block and the inset block using the same block layout, just colored differently. Then I modified the cutting to make it simpler and put them all on point. The end result reminded me of flashbulbs going off between the stars. And you course, who always has the best hari no matter what? You guessed it! Movie Stars!
My good friend at Whispering Pines Studio, Miriam, quilted it for me. She used an Anne Bright pantograph called Rapunzel, which I thought was cleverly appropriate considering the whole theme of the quilt and fabric is hair =) Miriam always has time for my huge last minute projects, and she deserves a HUGE thank you for that! Her work is always perfect.
You can find the Movie Star pattern in the latest issue of American Quilter Magazine, or online as a download if you are an AQS member. I will be playing with this block design in the future as well, there is a lot of potential there. The magazine is definitely worth picking up for the show winners. Marilyn Badger (one of my personal quilt heros) won the Paducah Best of Show with her STUNNING quilt and the cover shows all the detail of that beauty!
