Flowering and Bursting Lone Star Pattern Launches!

I am very excited to announce the launch of two new patterns to my Craftsy Shop!  The two patterns available are the Flowering Lone Star and the Bursting Lone Stars.  I am offering these patterns as individual patterns or a combination download.

The Flowering Lone Star

 DSC_0734This was the original pattern I started with, the Flowering Lone Star. I made one for my cousin and quickly realized I needed to make one for me. I used some of my leftover diamonds (having cut way more than necessary) for the back, which is now it’s own pattern, Bursting Lone Stars.

Bursting Lone Stars

Sarah - Flowering Lone Star -http://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comOne of my regular readers, Sarah R, created this stunning quilt from the Flowering Lone Stars pattern. I love how her star pops against that dark blue background. I also love how she staged her quilt for this picture, that is one area I really need to get better at!

Jo - Flowering Lone Star - http://createthepoint.blogspot.ca/Jo - Bursting Lone Stars - http://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comJo, from CReate the poinT, made the Flowering Lone Star quilt top and used the Bursting Lone Stars pattern for the backing (which is why the Bursting Lone Stars has an extra border around it).  I am in awe of how she made the Flowering Lone star with one quarter of the center star in white. It adds so much visual interest to the quilt. I also love how she used all solids for the fabrics. Very modern!  Please visit Jo’s blog to read her review of the patterns and later this week Jo will be hosting a giveaway for a pattern as well!

Carolyn - Flowering Lone Star - http://sweetboaterchick.blogspot.com/Carolyn - Bursting Lone Stars - http://sweetboaterchick.blogspot.com/My wonderful blogging from Carolyn, from Sweet Boater Chick, tested for me again. She has tested virtually every pattern I have released and is just wonderful! She decided to get an early jump start on her Christmas Sewing and created these two stunning tops.  I am excited to see how she quilts them. Make sure to visit Carolyn to read about her experience and enter her giveaway!

As I hope you can see, both of these patterns are very versatile. To purchase the Flowering Lone Star pattern, visit my Craftsy Shop, it is $9.00. The Bursting Lone Stars pattern is also available in my Craftsy Shop for $9.00.  I have decided to also offer a bundle of both patterns together for $12.00. All purchases are instant PDF downloads.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
