Bohemian Blue Star Blossom Quilt

Last summer (2021) while vacationing in the Lake Ada, MN, area I visited a local quilt shop and fell hard, real hard, for the blues and greens of Bohemian Blue by Lisa Audit for Wilmington Prints.
They are just the perfect shades, in my opinion, and will always hold a special place in my heart because, well, I found them while at Lake Ada.

This Bohemian Blue version of my quilt pattern Star Blossom began with these little split-quarter-square triangle blocks - cutest little blocks ever!!!

Put split-quarter-square triangles together with regular half-square triangle blocks and you get a beautiful pinwheel star. 

Isn't this quilt center beautiful?!
I'm so glad this is a spring/summer quilt.
We are going to be able to enjoy it for several months.

The Star Blossom quilt pattern works well as a quilted table topper as well as a wallhanging.

The double borders of this simple quilt allow you to showcase a couple of favorite fabric prints.
Isn't the floral print on navy darling?

More diagonal straight-line grid quilting. 
When it's the perfect touch, you go with it.
Diagonal quilting is the only time I mark the quilt before using my walking foot to quilt.

I love the comfy-home-country feel this straight-line quilting adds to any quilt.

I'm thrilled with how my latest version of the Star Blossom quilt pattern turned out. 
It's a fairly quick quilt to finish and can be made with fat quarters or quarter yard cuts.

Happy quilting, everyone : )


  1. I'm with you on Bohemian Blue. I fell hard too. I used layer cakes to make two different quilts as gifts, but also bought 2 more layers cakes wanting to make a king quilt to keep. No pattern yet. Although you are tempting me to do table runners and toppers. I need to go think. Beautiful star blossoms.

    1. It's such a lovely line to work with and I love it on the wall. We have a solid quilted blue cover on our bed and this wallhanging coordinates perfectly! I feel like our room has some style now : )
