A Fifth Annual #APQQuiltalong

American Patchwork & Quilting‘s fifth annual quilt-along is here and it’s five stars! The 2018 quilt-along is titled Star Search and features three 8-pointed star patterns.

Star blocks are a favorite among many quilters! They look good in every color and fabric, and really make a quilt shine.

There are three projects to choose from in the quilt along. The one above (the one I’m doing) is called On the Bright Side by Jo Kramer and Kelli Hanken of Jo’s Country Junction. It appears in American Patchwork & Quilting‘s February 2018 issue. There is also a quilt in Quilts and More Spring 2018 by Joanna Burgarino and Alison Gamm (below).

The third project is one I made (yay!) and it’s a free online project on AllPeopleQuilt.com.

I’m using the Fragile collection by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics plus fabrics from my stash! I really love a black, white, and yellow color palette (it’s what our home decor is), and think it’s a fun pop of color.

I hope you can join the quilt along! All details + participating designers are here. I’ll be posting regular pics of my progress on the blog and on Instagram!

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”


The official quilt along hashtag is #APQQuiltalong, so make sure you tag your pics so we can follow along!
