Star Crossed Sew Along and fabric Giveaway / by Riane Menardi

It's a sew along! I was thrilled to be asked to take part in the Star Crossed Sew Along with the good people of Fat Quarter Shop this month. The pattern is lovely — made up of flying geese, right and left geese, and square blocks. It's a really rewarding pattern that's fun to sew and looks gorgeous in any color (plus, the points are pretty easy to keep straight! I was thrilled.)

For my version, I chose a blue/white color scheme with two fabulous fabrics: Pure Elements Tile Blue Solid and Skopelos Intese Fish Scholeio, both from Art Gallery Fabrics. The fish are so. much. fun. Seriously, how cute are they?!

Unfortunately, I was frantically rushing to get my sister's graduation quilt done recently (more on that later!) and I didn't have time to quilt it. But the top turned out great, and I'm thinking some hand-quilted concentric circles are just the ticket. So without further ado, Star Crossed!

Fat Quarter Shop is graciously offering a giveaway of a fat quarter bundle from the Skopelos collection. Leave a comment on the blog and tell me how you would put your spin on this Star Crossed beauty. I'll choose a winner on Friday!

Also, be sure to check out the other fabulous versions of Star Crossed from the rest of the sew along participants and purchase your own Star Crossed pattern here!
