Star Cube

Introducing Star Cube!

Quilt Pattern, Quilts

I am really tickled today to get to share my quilt, Star Cube, that I designed for the International Association of Quilters.

I used a bright and happy yellow color palette of Michael Miller Cotton Couture to create Star Cube: Candlelight (lightest), Canary, Lemon, and Yellow (darkest).

The design inspiration for Star Cube is literally a 3D cube line drawing. It is a doodle that I have sketched for almost as long as I can remember, and it finally dawned on me that I could piece it and turn it into a quilt!

So, now that I’ve shown you the 3D line sketch of the cube, can you see the cube in one quadrant of the quilt?

I also love how the center of the quilt comes together to create a pinwheel kind of effect.

The large star shape that is created is a happy coincidence from the original design idea. I bet now you know how the quilt got its name and why I chose to make my first version in yellow!

The Star Cube quilt has been nap certified by my husband. 🙂

Stay tuned for a second version of Star Cube that I have planned in prints. I’m looking forward to making the design again.

And if you missed out on the open signup period for the International Association of Quilters that closed on August 31st, you can be put on a waiting list until sign ups re-open at the end of December.
