Splendid Split Stars

 I got a new pattern in my shop called Splendid Split Stars.

We made up some kits for this project. We kitted the throw size (54.5" by 72.5") in the batik fabrics below, which should mimic the quilt on the pattern cover pretty closely.

Cutting out this quilt can seem a bit daunting as there are 24 different fabrics in this quilt. However, once you get over the 2 1/2 pages of cutting information, you realize that you are only cutting three different sizes of squares from each fabric. Not too bad really. But you need to be organized. If I was going to travel anywhere with this project I would put my pieces in labeled zip bags. But I'm not taking it any where so I used sheets of paper folded in half. I wrote the letter of the fabric on the outside and tucked the cut pieces on the inside.

organizing my cut pieces

I only have three blocks made so far. The piecing is not hard, just plain squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles, but again, you have to be organized.

I'm lovin' it so far. If you want a kit don't wait too long. We only had enough of these fabrics for a few kits.

All the fabrics in our kits are labeled for you so you don't have to guess which fabric goes where. The pattern is very good and even included pressing instructions for each block which I find super helpful.
