NEW BOOK - I Love Star Blocks

Moda Designer's I Love Star Blocks by Martingale

And who doesn't? Star blocks are a favorite among quilters of all skill levels. They're a favorite among designers, as well, as you'll see in this new compilation book from Martingale. I am honored, as always, to be included with so many talented designers offering such an eclectic mix of design styles. There's something for every quilter!

Click HERE  to check out Martingale's blog post.


Along with all the beautiful quilts shown on the cover, here's a look at a few more of the delightfully different and interesting star quilts included in I Love Stars, including mine featuring our mini melon template.
