Bursting Star and a Giveaway!

If you've been around for a while, you may remember my Bursting Star/Starburst quilt, published in McCall's Magazine several years ago. It's such a striking quilt and much easier than it looks! And if you missed it the first time, it's been recently republished in the latest issue {Nov/Dec} of McCall's.


I saw it on the newsstand this weekend - so here's your second chance to get the pattern! McCall's was nice enough to send me 2 copies and I'm offering one as a giveaway today {US only}! Just leave a comment on this post. I've seen the quilt made up in so many collections! Do you have a favorite new or old collection that you'd like to make it in?


I love that they are showing a few different color ways in the magazine...



Good luck and I'll pick a winner on Thursday!

  5. I love this pattern. It was a quilt with this design that first grabbed my interest in patchwork, some fifty years ago, although it was more than forty years before I actually got started! Now I'm hooked!

  7. I would probably make this using my collection of Parson Grey fabrics. A manly star.

  8. Very pretty! I like how the star is actually circular at the outer edge of the design.

  9. This is beautiful and really versatile! I would love to see this in one of Denyse Schmidt's collections, maybe Hadley. The vintage appeal of the star design and that collection would really pair well together.

  13. Since I have rainbows on my mind from our Sunday School lesson yesterday, I would have to say this would look pretty neat in solid colors in the order of a rainbow. Now I really want to make this!!

  43. I made one of your quilts but made it a bit larger. It ended up being 10 feet x 10 feet. It was for my brother's retirement from the Air Force. Here's a link to the photo of it: http://st.houzz.com/simgs/33f37c0b0214ef5e_3-3711/deb_shetler.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  55. How funny is this?? I just saw, and admired, your quilt in a book I looked at in one of the stores I visited today! I don't remember the book, but know it wasn't the magazine, because I have looked in several stores for the new issue, and it isn't on the stands yet in this area. Glad to know when I finally find the new issue, that your quilt will be in it!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'd say Miss Kate or 30's but really I just like the Rainbow.

    ReplyDelete

  62. I'm not sure if I'd use a specific fabric line, but I'd likely make it in earthy colors with splashes of golds and/or yellows. One thing is for sure…if I don't win, I'm going to pick up a copy elsewhere!
