The quilt pattern I can't get enough of...

I assume most of you know of  Jeni Baker from In Color Order and her Giant Vintage Star pattern...and if you haven't you can see her tutorial here. I can NOT get enough of this pattern!!!! I am now working on my my 4th version of this Giant Vintage Star.

The first version I did it in fabrics from the Happy Zombie... they reminded me of sheets my Mom had in the 70's.

The second time I made it out of plaid flannels for my brother.

The third time I used lots of Anna Marie Horner fabrics and I'm calling this one my Boho Gypsy Vintage Star... it is currently out with my long arm quilter Terry Finnerty and I can't wait to get it on my bed for Fall.

And almost immediately after taking that one to Terry I started my fourth Giant Vintage Star... in Halloween fabrics!

This one will also be big enough to cover my double bed when it is finished. I'm using 16 different Halloween fabrics for the star. Here's a look at some of them.

And adding in some other fabrics in the borders.  I love the one with the witches underwear and I don't have much of it left. That kinda tone on tone pattern with the jack-o-lanterns is the background fabric I'm using.

Terry has a great Halloween panto that will look wonderful on this quilt.  I know it is hard to get a feel for the scale of these quilts so here is my first one which is currently on my  double bed.

It is such a fun quilt to make. If you haven't made one before I have a few hints I included in a post  I did a little while ago and you can read them here. And when this one is done I have plans for a Christmas version too... red, green, aqua and pink... it is going to be so much fun... and yes I am a little crazy... okay a LOT crazy... but it isn't the kind of crazy that my son can have me committed for ....yet... at least that is what he tells me...LOL!!!

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday Freshly Pieced and with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times (yeah I'm late again).

happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Loving the Halloween one, and I think your Christmas color scheme sounds super cute!

  2. the Christmas colour scheme sounds awesome! I must resist buying anymore Christmas fabric though, I need to sew some of the stuff I have already hoarded!!

  3. That is going to be a wonderful quilt!! I love all those fun Halloween fabrics. By the way, I am very impressed with how perfectly the points match!

  4. Beautiful quilts and fabrics--the Halloween one is just the bomb!
