Stained Glass Stars Published

Fons and Porter’s LOVE OF QUILTING Magazine published my Stained Glass Stars pattern as an online Bonus Pattern in their January/February 2013 issue on page 98.  You can get the pattern HERE!

They did not give credit to the Machine Quilter, Brenda Weien of Ottawa, KS, who did an amazing job on the quilting!
In the magazine they rate the pattern as Intermediate, but on their website they rate it as Challenging!  You pick!  I would rate it Intermediate for setting blocks and Advanced for the star blocks.  I paper pieced much of it, but their instructions have you rotary cut and strip-piece the whole quilt.  Not that difficult in my opinion. The star blocks do take some time because of all the pieces, but they are not difficult.  I did most of them at a retreat and had a blast watching them come together.
If you receive the Fons & Porter’s LOVE OF QUILTING Newsletter, there is a link to the quilt in the December 25. 2012 issue.

  1. That's one of your prettiest patterns yet Reeze! Love it! I don't get F&P as a subscription, so I'll have to go pick one up. I'd much rather paper-piece though - that would seem much easier to me.

  8. Oh, that is beautiful. I see that it is seen as challenging, and I believe it, but I can see it in batiks and my fingers really want to begin cutting fabric.

  13. Good morning, Reeze,

    Your quilt is gorgeous. Congratulations on having it published in Fons and Porter's magazine. I think it will reach many from your website, but a whole lot more with the magazine. Many thanks for sharing.

    I think I'll look into the paper piecing, too. I tend to be more accurate with it than the regular piecing.

    Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year!
