New Quilt Pattern: A Charming Barn Star 3

A Charming Barn Star Quilt 3 has been gracing our wall for a couple weeks. It's dear husband's favorite to date, which thrills my heart, and our kids love the 3D effect.

Patriotic coordinating quilted wallhanging and table runner - goal accomplished!

My goal with this pattern design was to create a quilt using a charm pack/mini charm pack utilizing squares as much as possible and very few half square triangles/HST. For the border I wanted a bold frame yet not just strips of fabric. Trying to use as much of the charm pack as possible, I was inspired to use four patches in the corners. Voila! a striking yet simple quilt. My kind of quilt pattern : )

Straight line quilting with hashtag quilting in the center and corners to keep it simple but a bit different to change the quilting up a bit. (Don't you just love that striped binding?! Sweet Tea fabric has some of the best stripes for binding.)

A Charming Barn Star 3 quilt pattern makes two sizes using either a charm pack (5" squares) or a mini charm pack (2.5" squares). Throw in a little background and border fabric and you have a quick finish.
