New Pattern: Charming Barn Star

My quiltings goals for summer 2022 were perhaps lofty. Some still sit here in a little stack waiting for their moment (not to worries, lovelies; your moment will come) and some, through sheer grit and determination, shine on a bit in finished glory. 

Making with Stitched by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics was an absolutely must for this summer.
With just a charm pack (5" squares), a bit of border, and some background a new barn quilt for the wall is made.

I'm pleased to introduce Charming Barn Star, a new Charming Barn Quilt Pattern.
I was so set on it being a summer fabric line that I didn't see its full potential until it was hung on the wall.
In this quilted wallhanging I now see the blue-blue skies that are late summer/early fall and I think of sunflowers that are currently in there glory everywhere. Late summer/early fall is truly a very nice season.

Love the center of this quilt! It's such a pretty star.

Didn't quite know how to quilt this one so I didn't push it and kept the quilting very, very simple with 1"-spaced straight-line quilting.

For Charming Barn Star I decided to try a bit wider border. I'm never quite sure how to determine a good quilt border width. Here I settled on making the border block width. It gives a favorite print room to shine without taking over, I think.

It makes three sizes using either a charm pack, mini charm pack (2.5" squares) or a layer cake (10" squares).

Happy quilting, everyone : )
