I always look forward to a pattern release day, but today is extra special. With my site redesign, I now have an integrated store and Mod Star Tree is exclusively available as of today in the Quilting Jetgirl store!
And here’s the cool thing about today’s release: you get to choose which of the two color themes you would rather receive the pattern in. The pattern is absolutely the same apart from the front and back cover main colors and the pattern name headers within the pattern.
The Mod Star Tree design was inspired by a desire to create a modern holiday quilt, but with a heavy nod to tradition: the result is a whimsical tree made out of traditional star blocks in a large, graphic layout. The blocks can be pieced using fabric in your stash or a grouping of specially curated fat quarters.
What colors would you make this in? If I were to make a second version, I think I would use blue, white, and silver as my next color palette.
So, which version would you purchase:
You can vote with your purchase or let me know in the comments!
To celebrate the Mod Star Tree pattern release and opening of the Quilting Jetgirl shop, the Mod Star Tree Pattern will be on sale for $8 through April 18th.
Please note that the Mod Star Tree pattern is only available for sale in the Quilting Jetgirl shop, and if you have any difficulties using this new feature of my site, please email me (yvonne(at)quiltingjetgirl(dot)com) and I will do my best to resolve anything that may crop up. Thanks in advance for your excitement, patience, and understanding as this new site feature gets up and running!

This is stunning, your quilts always look so fresh I love the idea of blue and silver I think that would be an awesome quilt. Xxx
Are you serious ?? The pattern is the same, the only difference is the colors around the quilt picture–we choose either red or green margins on the pattern cover ???? If you wanted to know our choices perhaps you should have shown the quilt in 2 different color choices. Who cares about the “margins/border” surrounding the quilt picture???? Or am I missing something here.?
thank-you. I was thinking the same thing. I was wondering what I missing.
I’m still drawn to the cool colours and the green more than than the red keeping with the results of your survey. I’m sure there is a psychological reason behind it like most people’s favourite colour is blue or some such thing. Love the re-design, looks great!
I’ve always loved this quilt. Congrats on the pattern release.
Green wins out again! Congrats on the release of Mod Star!
Your new site is looking really good, Yvonne. I think a blue version of the quilt will be awesome. I also wonder if a version with grey, red and white would work? Or maybe a light turquoise, red and white(?) or a red/white print(?) — not sure on the last color in that colorway. And I’d go with the green pattern.
Congrats on the pattern release, I think that the design would look great in blues and silvers.
I like green the best Your design is great! Wouldn’t it be fun to make the background deep navy or black and the blocks out of fabrics with a metallic shimmer? It would look like a tree lit up at night!
Loved this design the first time I saw it, Yvonne and I still do! I think I would choose the red border since I like red and white. Blue and silver sounds like a great colourway!
I really like this quilt! It’s funny that you mentioned a blue, silver, and white combination because I’ve been working with that combination and LOVE it!. Congratulations on the site changes. It looks great – nice and clean. As for the color scheme on the pattern, I prefer the green version, but like them both. I for one, like that you’ve shown this in two colorways. I’ve been working on changing the look of my patterns as well as my blog, and like seeing what you’d done. It makes me realize that I really DO need to pay attention to color, think about the choices, and ask for opinions. Thanks!
Congrats on the pattern release (and I like the green, personally). Love the polished look of the blog too.
Green, all the way. Congratulations on the new settings on your blog, it is in NZ terms ” Clean and green”. ( although you do not have to have the colour green to make those words true) I agree, colour on pattern covers makes a huge difference, and colour in the pattern pieces themselves influences me in a big way. Lovely tree, super pattern.
Really cool! I like how it’s a tree but it’s more subtle than a traditional Christmas tree quilt. I think this will look luscious in metallics, too!
Congrats on the new pattern release! It’s a fun quilt. Liz’s idea of using metallics for the stars would make a gorgeous quilt.
Ohh that sounds cool!
Red and green are two of my favorites colors, but I’ll always love green the most. I love the aqua and silver combo we have on our tree I think I might consider trying those colors? So many options you can’t go wrong!
While reading this post, I was really drawn to the red version. I hoped over to your store (which looks fantastic by the way) and guess what, I’m totally more in love with the green one over there. What does that mean?? I absolutely love this quilt. I am a sucker for a Christmas tree quilt 🙂
Loving the new look Yvonne! Glad you had success with the weighted quilt, and congrats on the pattern release and integrated shop!
Congrats on the new release and new store! A blue/silver version would be so pretty, as would a batik version. Yum!
Yvonne likely wants to know what is more appealing to people in terms of whether they would make a purchase. Often people buy things based on colours so she’s likely doing a marketing test and asking us, her regular readers to help her with that decision. She’s running a business and it’s giving her information she can use.
I thought my above comment would end up under a previous comment but it didn’t , oh well. I voted with my dollars and clicked on red I am so happy to have this pattern as I was looking for the magazine it was in originally and couldn’t find it. I’m going to make me a colourful Christmas Tree quilt to hang on the wall.
This is a really fun pattern Yvonne and I love the new look on the site! I have a fat quarter bundle in shimmery and metallic fabrics which would make a really fun, non-traditional, Christmas quilt! On my way to click the “red” pattern right now!!
Great pattern! I think I’d choose red. I think it would look awesome in blue, white, and silver.
I like the colours you have chosen, but I would use patterned fabric instead of plains, obviously! Now is a good time to release a Christmas pattern as it allows people plenty of time to sew. Congratulations on the new shop!
