Savannah Star for The Quilter's Planner

Savannah Star – Quilt for The Quilter’s Planner


I was preparing a blog post to link up with the Best of 2017 Linky Party hosted by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs, and I realized that I have a quilt finish from 2017 that I haven’t shared about! That is very unusual for me. I figured I would share about the quilt before I posted my Best of 2017 wrap up.

This 40×40 quilt is the Savannah Star, which is a free pattern that you receive as a digital download when you purchase the 2018 Quilter’s Planner. Because I made the quilt as part of my pattern editing and testing, I forgot to share it when The Quilter’s Planner announced that the pattern is available as a digital download at the end of November.

Because Alison Glass is the featured designer for the 2018 Quilter’s Planner, I was able to select some of her beautiful Sun Prints to work with to make the quilt. Left to right they are: Sun Print Overgrown in Amaranth, Sun Print Meadow in Tide, Sun Print Link in Yonder, and Sun Print Overgrown in Cloud.

I used 50wt Aurifl 2600 (Dove) to quilt an organic crosshatch. The spacing is roughly every 1/2-inch.

The backing is more Sun Print Link in Yonder, and I added a hanging sleeve before I shipped the quilt to Kitty from Night Quilter so that she could do her beautiful photography for The Quilter’s Planner.
