Star Surround Quilt Along from Happy Quilting Melissa

Ready for another fun quilt along? My friend Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting Melissa is hosting a quilt along featuring her original Star Surround Block. She has kindly asked me to provide some kits for it featuring my favorite Kona Solids.

The first color scheme I chose to call “Modern Patriotic.” It’s so fresh and clean!

Here’s another version which I named “Dandelion Grey”. These were fun to color!

I also put together a “Classic Tuxedo” version for fans of black, white, red and grey.

All 3 versions are available in 3 different kit sizes: baby, throw, or queen. I love Melissa’s design because it’s only 9 blocks, no matter which size you pick. Rather than making more blocks, you just make them in bigger sizes. So clever!!

Star Surround Quilt AlongMelissa has already calculated all the fabric requirements and she’s a pro at figuring out the math. All you have to do is pick your favorite fabric or kit and quilt along. 🙂

    Stopping by from Anything Goes. I love this pattern and the color combinations you have come up with. I am tempted by this QAL but I have too many projects going already.
