12 different patterns made with the same fabrics – #12DaysOfSummer – Day One


A few days ago, I had a brainstorm: We have some fabrics leftover from our June Kit, and I decided I wanted to try and make a bunch of different patterns out of those same 3 fabrics.

I’m only a few in, but they are turning out so cute! I want to show you one each day up through the Fourth of July – which means I’ll show you 12 different ornament patterns all together!

So…. here is Day One: The Basic Star Pattern!

I’m starting with the Basic Star, because it was the VERY first pattern I ever wrote.

This is the one that is based on the old-fashioned ‘Quilted Star’ technique that has been around forever and ever. Over the years, I changed it up just a tad and put my own little spin on the way it’s done. You can take my free (yes, FREE) 3-video workshop, teaching this pattern step-by-step, if you would like to learn to make these! You can join in RIGHT HERE.

The two ornaments below are both made with the Basic Star Pattern… but I actually added a 5th layer to the one in front (and just put each layer a little closer together than I normally do). I also simply changed the order of colors between the two – so they look like two entirely different ornaments (this is something I LOVE about folded fabric ornaments – so many possibilities!).

See ya with Pattern #2 tomorrow!

    Love your idea. I learned the basic star pattern and subscribed to others.
    I can’t believe how very talented you are.
    Thanks for these new ideas.
