Our Newest quilt kit is available NOW
The pattern has the overlapping stars that I was looking for, but it also creates a secondary pattern with plusses between the stars. The end result is a pattern that is a little bit traditional, but modernized and interesting and really versatile for using a variety of different fabrics.
One thing I really like about the Ruby Star Society fabrics, is that they feel substantial but are thinner than a lot of other fabrics. In my experience, this leads to points that are easier to lineup and seams that are a little less bulky.
I know this is something I talk about all of the time when I introduce a new pattern, but making sure a pattern is versatile and will work with lots of different fabric combinations is important with every pattern. This one is so much fun! The black fabric in the image above (it is called Fabric C in the pattern) works best when it really stands out from your other fabrics - it does a great job of giving unity to a your fabric choices.
The pattern also works well if you are playing with value like the image above. All of the main fabrics are pink, but the difference in value makes the shapes stand out. I think this would be a really fun scrap quilt based on value, I will have to add that to my list!
