Jellied Lone Star at the Moda Bake Shop

I am just so excited to be a featured chef over at the Moda Bake Shop today with my newest quilt: Jellied Lone Star. Inspired by the Hopeful Homemaker’s Lone Star Tutorial. I expanded the concept to include both pre-cut jelly roll strips as well as a no Y-seam method to sew the star together!

It’s a lengthy tutorial but while at first glance it looks quite challenging it comes together so wonderfully and you’ll have a beautiful lone star medallion measuring 59″ x 59″.

My favorite part about this pattern is that it’s a traditional design revisited with a contemporary spin. That spin being no Y-seams and strip piecing rather than lengthy English paper piecing or cutting and piecing 400 individual pieces.

One thing that makes today really gratifying is that my very first quilt (which I am laying under while writing this post) was a Moda Bake Shop tutorial, so that’s really where I got my start quilting so it’s a full circle that makes me thankful for the supportive online community that cheers on each other’s successes. Jellied Lone Star was quilted edge to edge by Brenda Bergdoll at the Fabric Stash in Charlton MA.

Some of you may remember you’ve seen this star before, though a bit smaller in my rainbow grunge quilt with the arrows that made me a bit frustrated…

Arrows with border

You can read more about that project in my post about what happens when you print paper piecing patterns scaled down. I also released that fun paper piecing arrow pattern for free on Craftsy.

In designing these two quilts quilt one thing I was surprised that I couldn’t find online was printable for coloring your own lone star design. After creating one to use myself to write up the tutorial I thought this would be a neat download to share with everyone!

  1. I saw the post over at Moda Bakeshop and thought, oh hey, I know her! (Or at least your blog). Looks like a fun project. I love the colouring page idea – I always draw my patterns out on graph paper and then photocopy it to audition different colours.

  2. Wow! You’ve gone to a lot of work here to make a really nice tutorial and some great extras (coloring book and size options) for everyone. Thank you so much. I wish I had used this method when I made a Lone Star. Next time, I will. I love how you did the coloration to create a darker border for the star. Thanks for the arrow pattern too. You are awesome!

  3. Thanks for the coloring book! You’re so right about there not being one out there to work from! Thanks also for the tutorial, I have always wanted to make one but have been afraid of the y-seams. I’ll check yours out.

  4. I had the fabrics already, saw this and instantly knew it was the one for that selection of fabric. Now for a quiet weekend!

  5. Hi,

    I just read about this quilt and I’m loving the idea of giving this quilt a try. The way you did the top by removing the y-seams was awesome.

    For some reason I can’t sign up to your newsletter to get the ebook which I would love to have a play around with. I’m thinking of doing a completely scrappy lone star for my little girls’ first quilt (big bed not cot). Is there anyway I can get the ebook? (Also I would love to get your news letter because your blog is fantastic and SUPER inspiring!!!)


  6. I would love to download the colouring page for the Jellied Lonestar but the link seems to be inoperable.

  7. Same here. I’d love to get your newsletter and the coloring book but the link doesn’t appear to be working.

    1. Glad you let me know Catherine – looks like I broke the form by accident but I’ve emailed you the coloring book and fixed the signup for everyone else šŸ™‚

  8. Am having a problem getting the white triangles to match up. The white triangles seem way to big. We cannot get them to look anything like the pictures! I cut an 11″ square and a 15′ square, in half. Not working! What am I doing wrong? Thank you!
