NEW PATTERN: Origami Galaxy


I'm so excited to share my newest pattern called Origami Galaxy. I made this quilt a couple of years ago but didn't get the pattern finished until a couple of weeks ago. And my fabulous graphic designer made it look beautiful so I could send it to the printer.

This quilt is made of simple star blocks set on point. Where the blocks meet, along with the pieced sashing, creates the secondary design. To me, these pieces almost looked like they were folded together, even though they are simple squares and triangles sewn in the traditional way.


When my kids were young, my son Danny loved origami. He could fold anything into a rocket, animal or crazy object. So looking at this quilt reminded me a bit of the fun bits of paper I used to find around the house folded into stars and odd shapes.



This was the second quilt I ever quilted on my new longarm last year. I used a fun geometric design that mimics the patchwork in the quilt. I resized it (by a LOT) because I didn't know any better, and I love the way it turned out.


If you've got some scraps, or fat quarters or fat eighths in your stash (and I know you do!) this is great quilt for using up lots of bits. Also, the inner border and setting blocks are easy to assemble, and they are just sewn onto the end of the block rows before the rows are sewn together. I love getting an impressive result that is easier than it looks!


Let me know what you think of this new pattern in the comments and I'll randomly select a winner for a free digital copy. And if you can't wait for the drawing, and have to purchase it now, I'll be happy to send you a copy of any pattern of your choice if you win! I call that a win/win for sure!

GIVE AWAY CLOSED

Enjoy every stitch!

  2. Your quilt is beautiful, and I love the pattern with its stars, low volume fabric, and bright pops of color. I especially like that it is very scrap friendly. I have a several stacks of fat eighths that would be perfect for these blocks.

  8. I really, really like this quilt. Your colors drew me to it, but the design is awesome. I am always on the look out for quilts that I can use scrap, and this would be perfect. That said, I think, a fabric line would make it breathtaking also! Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  15. I love this quilt. I am moving this summer so no new projects for awhile but would love to give this a try next year once I'm settled. Is your scrappy or did you use a line, I love the pop of turqoise in the quilt and the border
