Love is Love Fabric Collection – Bonus Blocks

As I mentioned on Friday, the curve star blocks in the Sky Full of Stars quilt create great scraps that can easily be made into 5″ finished drunkard’s path bonus blocks. Each star can create 4 of the bonus blocks, so with 17 stars in the quilt top, that’s a total of 68 bonus blocks. Score!

I spent the weekend pinning, chain sewing, pressing, and trimming, and I was able to get all of the blocks assembled. I paired the prints with Kona Cotton in Bone, which is very similar to the background color of the Gender Symbols Rainbow print that I used as the Love is Love Fabric Collection Sky Full of Stars background print.

Because there are a handful of directional prints, the bonus quilt that I developed to go along with the Sky Full of Stars quilt, Hang On, isn’t going to be the best choice for arranging these blocks. Time to get creative!

The Love is Love Pride Fabric Collection by Mathew Boudreaux (whom you may likely know as Mister Domestic) is available exclusively through and is printed by PBS Fabrics. All Love is Love fabric shown in this post was provided by PBS Fabrics.

  1. I always love the challenge of the directional prints. It will be fun to see what you come up with!

  2. Basically what Kathleen said but also yay for one design birthing another, and also using up those extras!

    I think you’ve definitely mastered curves! I like that no fabric goes to waste too.

  4. I love the bonus quilt system. It is lovely that you designed one specifically to use up leftovers from a scrap intensive project.

  5. The rainbow colors are really fun. Looking forward to seeing how all these blocks go together.
