I had so many ideas for the Star Lake Quilt that I ended up making SIX different versions! I just find this pattern so fun to make! Keep reading to meet the rest of them...

First up, I made this super cute baby quilt in another combination of peaches, blues and purples - which is quickly becoming a “classic” TBS colourway! 

Star Lake Blues Peaches Floor

Check out this Home Street quilt with similar colours!

I used the following Kona Cotton colours for the Star Lake in blues and peaches:

Star Lake Blues and Peaches Block

I chose Droppar Moondust for the backing from Art Gallery Fabrics and the binding is a striped Gingham Farm fabric by Riley Blake.

After a “false start” and ripping out my original quilting (a totally normal part of creating, by the way!), I ended up quilting this one with a design called “Switch Corner” from Jacquie Gering’s book “Walk” (Canadians, click here). 

Star Lake Bad Thread

Star Lake Stitch Rip

I ended up using 28wt Aurifil Thread in Muslin... my new favourite thread! 

With my recent pattern designs, I’ve very intentionally made sure that they work with both multi-colours (six colours for Star Lake) and two colours. Two colour quilts feel very modern and clean to me, so I had to make a Star Lake Quilt version in the throw size!

The Kona Cotton colours I used are: 

I made a Rockwood and a Landmark quilt in the same colourway!

I’ve decided that I am going to hand quilt this one in an interesting way - a relaxing project that I can do over the summer months!
Next, I made a Star Lake wall hanging in TBS “classic” greens!

Star Lake Greens Floor
I made a Grand Beach quilt in similar colours, and I actually think about this quilt a lot. So, I wanted to bring this darker green colourway back! I also made a Riding Mountain quilt in similar colours!

The Kona Cotton colours I used for this green Star Lake are: 

Star Lake Green Erin

The backing and binding are both Kona Spruce

I machine quilted it using 50wt Aurifil thread in Natural White, echoing the "X" shape within the star design!

Next up, I made a throw size in these ADORABLE prints! 

This one is going to be our summer lovin’ quilt and come with us everywhere!

Star Lake Food Group Dog Floor

I used the following fabrics from Ruby Star Society’s collaborative collection called “Food Group” - which all make me VERY happy: 

Star Lake Food Group Machine

Star Lake Food Group Heart

I used Art Gallery Fabric’s Afternoon Sail from the Denim Studio Collection for the backing.

For the binding, I used this cute striped fabric from Dear Stella in Flame.

For this one, I was so tempted to do basic straight-line grid quilting…but! I went out of my box and did these wavy quilting stitches instead! I’ve never done it before and I wasn’t 100% sure about it, but I actually think it’s quite sweet with this one!

I used 50wt Aurifil Thread in Natural White.

Star Lake Food Group Machine

And lastly, I made another baby size in Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Solids! I actually had ordered these for a Home Street quilt, but didn’t end up making it! I honestly think it’s for the best because they really shine with this Star Lake! 

Star Lake AGF Fabrics and Backing

Star Lake AGF HSTs

It’s a slightly out-of-the-box colour palette for me, but really not too far! I love the pretty and soft look of these muted tones.

Star Lake AGF Feet

Here are AGF Pure Solids I used:

Star Lake AGF Erin Look

The backing is Her & History’s Ida’s Pressed Flowers from Art Gallery Fabrics. I used Blushing for the binding and hand quilted it using 28wt Aurifil Thread in Muslin.
