Rich Colors Seem to Glow In This Amazing Quilt!
This bold wall hanging will make a statement wherever it is displayed. Use it as a focal point on a wall, or on a large table for a stunning presentation. It can also be used as a lap quilt and will be striking draped over the sofa.
Colorful, low-contrast fabrics seem to glow next to the black accents. The blacks also tame the scrappiness, giving it structure and leading your eye around the quilt.
Richly colored batiks and other low contrast fabrics are made for this quilt. You’ll have fun going through your stash and pulling out fabrics. Be mindful of the placement of light and dark values in order to maximize the design.
A free PDF is provided with alternative settings for the inner blocks.
The finished quilt, by Renee Peterson, is 60 1/2″ X 60 1/2″. Reduce the number of blocks in the center for a smaller quilt.
The pattern for “Shimmering Stars” is included in the magazine McCall’s Quilting January/February 2010.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
