simple stars

Hello friends, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I quite enjoyed these few days of no work, very little cooking and cleaning, and just general relaxing with family and friends. I even caught up on some much needed sleep, so no complaints here :).


And, I got to read through the newest issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine. It's full of beautiful quilting projects, and I'm excited to have my Simple Star quilt included, yay!!!



It's a super simple, pretty quick to make quilt. It's made of large equilateral triangles, no hexagons or y-seams involved, which makes it a good introduction to piecing triangles.


I used bright solid backing, which I think is a lovely contrast to sparse quilt top, and quilted it using vertical straight lines. Easy peasy.

This newest edition of LPQ magazine (issue 29) should be hitting our US stores in about a week or two (already available in the UK). Hope you'll get one for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana

  12. I love the simplicity of this! I sure wish I could find these magazines by me. I tried a subscription but had delivery issues where I wouldn't get any for months and then one month I'd receive three issues. Really frustrating because it looks like a great magazine. Congrats on getting this in the magazine!

  15. Hi Svetlana, I was just reading through this issue again and your quilt stopped me in my tracks. I am looking for a simple, striking quilt like this. I wanted to ask about your backing fabric as I've been looking for a small cross/plus print like this. I've been searching Etsy but can't seem to find this one. Would you share the fabric line / designer - I need a hint. Thank you!
