Ready for Another Quilt Along? Thank your Lucky Stars!

Summer is a great time to start a new quilt. With more lazy days and fewer responsibilities you can sew to your heart’s content! Luckily, my friends Heather and Megan over at Quilt Story are launching a brand new summer quilt along. They are calling it Lucky Stars featuring Bonnie and Camille’s Happy Go Lucky line.

Heather’s Patriotic Lucky Stars

Heather has chosen to make her quilt in patriotic red, white and blue.

Megan has made hers in shades of aqua, lime and navy with a hint of yellow and grey:

Aren’t they both fabulous? And so different from the same set of precuts!

Heather and Megan have asked me to provide some fabric for the quilt along and I’m happy to oblige. I’ve put together a starter kit combo of one Jelly Roll and one Layer Cake of Happy Go Lucky which will allow you to make either quilt! All you have to do is add 2.5 yards background fabric in whichever color scheme you wish.

I’ve selected a few coordinating prints that you can choose for background, binding or backing.

Heather chose light aqua penny dots for her background while Megan chose the darker navy penny dots for hers.

I know it’s a lot of fabric to invest in a quilt, so to make it easier on the budget I’m also offering this coupon: use code STORY to save an extra 10% off your entire order. Plus you will automatically get FREE US shipping (discounted int’l shipping), too!

And of course, you can pick fabrics from your own stash, too. Be sure to bookmark Heather and Megan’s blog so you don’t miss out on all the updates. Happy quilting!

    Thank you, that helps planning to know how many of each (I love Riley Blake and they only use about 20 strips and 20 pieces per roll and cake).
    And did they say how big the quilt is?

    I like the red white and blue patriotic quilt design. I like the shades of aqua, lime and navy with a hint of yellow and grey. It’s amazing that is same collection of fabrics.

    When I received this email I jumped up and down! Oh Christa thank you so very much for sharing this! I have been down lately since my grandchildren moved and seeing that first quilt really cheered me up.
