Have you all had enough of Paris? You know I’ve just barely scratched the surface of the 353 photos I took while there….
I thought I’d interject a little quilt shot of one of our best selling Christmas quilts, Yuletide Snowflake. It is a traditional Bethlehem or Lone Star made in warm Christmas colors and with the added applique you can turn it into a grandiose snowflake!
Now let me just tell you something about this quilt… ready for it…. ready for it…. this quilt has no templates, no special rulers, no insets seams and basically anyone can make this type of star! How this is possible is that if you use a jelly roll and cut your strips on the angles indicated in the pattern, you can make super easy diamond strips. When you position the same colors in the same spots, you make that fabulous lone star pattern. To top it all off, I figured out a way to add in all of the background pieces without making a single inset or “y” seam…. can you believe it? Now there is absolutely no reason why everyone can’t make a bethlehem star pattern such as this one even in time for Christmas. Although you might want to make a bit smaller than this giant one, but any size is beautiful!
Hope your holiday preparations are going well.
Talk to you soon.
