    Make a "Stars and Stitches" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    Enjoy !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    It is a nice quilt but I don't like to have to buy more templates. I guess you could cut your layer cake without these templates, just cut into 5 pieces.

    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

      You could really cut out any set of crazy templates - just start by drawing a box the size you want your finished block, draw lines across it (keep the sewing order in mind to avoid Y seams) and then once you cut them apart add 1/4" to all sides for seam allowances . Each quilt would be different if you made new templates (think cutting mat or milk jug plastic).

        An easier way of scrambling the colors is to leave one as is. The next one just take the top one and put to the bottom, the next take two and put to the bottom, and so on.

          Although I am not generally a fan of crazy quilts, this one I like-I think perhaps because it done in solids. This tutorial is making me think of other quilts that I could use the many fancy stitches on my machine. Hmmm...the creative juices are once again flowing.
          I have done so much sewing/quilting in the last several weeks that I find myself in a creative funk.
          One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

            I like the finished look, but I also don't want to buy any more templates.

              had a similar idea to make it foundation paper pieced, for that no thinking sewing😁
