Happy Friday!

I am one of many contributors to Martingale’s new I Love Star Blocks book that released earlier this month. There’s 16 beautiful quilts included in the book, and lots of eye candy!

I Love Star Blocks: 16 Quilts from an All-Time Favorite Block


The cover shows some of the variety of projects included in the book. Traditional to modern fabric selections give it a nice overall appeal for any quilter.

Woven Star

Woven Star is my contribution! It’s a perfect twin size quilt at 72″ x 90″ with just 9 blocks to piece!

Woven Star by Amy Ellis for I Love Star Blocks

I had a lot of fun selecting the perfect shades of blue to add depth to the stars, and setting them in a sea of grey. It’s a classic star with my modern twist, I’m always hoping to inspire the traditional quilter to try something a little bit different.

Woven Star is quilted with a digital wavy line pattern that has pebbles on one side. I set it up so that they made the cool shape by meeting at the widest point.
