twinkle twinkle – a stellar salute to star quilt blocks (+ giveaway!)

The fifth book in our “Block-Buster Quilts” series has arrived—and it is STAR STUDDED!

Block-Buster Quilts: I Love Star Blocks

If you’re familiar with our “Block-Buster” series of books, you know that each book is chock-full of quilts inspired by one beloved block (check out our “Block-Buster” books on Nine Patches, Churn Dashes, Log Cabins, and House blocks here). In our newest book, Block-Buster Quilts: I Love Star Blocks, the celebrated Star block is the *star* of the show. Here’s a quick peek at every stellar quilt in the book!

Make your own starry quilts with designs from Lynne Hagmeier, Kimberly Jolly, Janet Nesbitt, Amy Ellis, and more—they’ll help you stretch Star blocks sky high!

We love this collection of quilts so much, we created a little salute to I Love Star Blocks in our office—isn’t it sparkly?

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Judi, who says:

“I have seen a galaxy of star quilts. Stars are my favorites. I hosted a ‘choose your own star block’ swap for 24 quilters. Such fun. I am now making a Sawtooth Star block sampler. It is paper pieced and taking a loooong time, but I love it!”

We’ll email you about your prize, Judi—congratulations!
