We're on a countdown to November when my new book, Cozy Quilts and Comforts will be released by Martingale. I can't wait to go to market to hold the freshly printed pages in my hands. The color photos are beautiful and make our primitive KT Retreat space shine like a new penny.

This week's sneak peek is all about Stars - a Galaxy of Stars and Spinning Stars. Who doesn't love star quilts?
Our original Gallery of Stars featured Moda's precuts - a Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Pack plus border made the quilt on the wall using traditional piecing methods. For such a simple quilt, it really shines. My Layered Patchwork version on the bed has raw edge gold star points for faster, easier piecing. We still used a Jelly Roll and Charm pack, but opted for an assortment of KT tans for the large squares. Totally different look, still shining bright!
One of the other star projects is Shining Stars. By adding layered triangles to the corners of background squares, it creates a whirling, scrappy pinwheel star that's sure to please. A mini table runner option is also included in the book. Did you have a child-sized ironing board and iron when you were a kid? Who knew we'd love them just as much as adults? (Believe it or not, the green iron actually had an electrical cord to plug in and heat up the iron. I cut the cord off when the grandaughter figured out what a plug-in was when she was about 2 years old. How did we survive?)
