Charming Stars : The Fig Tree Version

As I promised you earlier,

here is the Fig Tree version of my

Charming Stars Quilt:




This version is a little bit different from my original version.

After all, I can't have two quilts that are exactly alike!




This time I only used two charm packs

from the fabric line Patisserie by Fig Tree for Moda.

My original recipe calls for three charm packs.

This meant that I would have (9) 13.5" X 13.5" blocks

instead of the (16) blocks that were in my

original version.


Also, I could not decide on a border fabric,

so I chose to eliminate the outer border.

This way the sashing border becomes

the order border.


Charming Stars: The Fig Tree Version

48" X 48"

(You can find my original recipe at the Moda Bake Shop.)




Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting!

  4. So beautiful Stefanie!

    I had been calculating and discovered I came short on charm packs so I was figuring out how to make the quilt with 2 charm packs, so thanks for showing what the quilt could look like!

  19. The "Fig Tree" link to the pattern isn't working for me this morning. Is it just a momentary glitch or something you can fix? I'd like to try this one.
