Another TQPM Pattern Test

In September I volunteered to do a pattern test for The Quilt Pattern Magazine of “Urban Stars”, written by Barbara Douglas for a finished 54 1/2” square quilt. This pattern is in the February edition of the magazine.

I pulled and pressed some batik fabrics from my stash, printed the pattern and templates, and cut it out in a couple of hours.

Using the paper pieced patterns and the templates for rough cutting the fabrics made the piecing go well.

I did find that trimming the pieces and blocks were really necessary in this pattern because the rough cut templates are a generous size.

This pattern was fun to make. I really enjoyed paper piecing it. it finished at exactly 54 1/2” square.

Once again I enjoyed testing another pattern for The Quilt Pattern Magazine.

I haven’t quilted this flimsy yet because I am debating adding borders to have a larger finished quilt. I’ll update this post as I add on or get it quilted.

Thanks for reading my post. 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! You and your stash amaze me. Pulling this goodness out of some previously purchased yet unplanned project is awesome. It’s a lovely quilt top supporting a cute pattern. Great job. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
