Dancing Stars Variations

Posted on January 9th, by Amy in Modern Basics, quilt-along. 15 comments

Hi there!  Yesterday my book released – at last!  Joe and I celebrated with a special lunch, while most of our kiddos were in school.  Owen was a trooper, while we traipsed around town.  My copies of Modern Basics II are on the way, and I will ship autographed copies the day after I receive them (Hopefully by Saturday!).

In other news, Dancing Stars blocks have started popping up on flickr and instagramDancing Stars Blocks - AmysCreativeSide.com

1. #dancingstarsQAL #oldredbarnco progress…, 2. P1060484, 3. Dancing Stars, 4. Dancing Stars QAL
Nearly 600 people have downloaded the Dancing Stars pattern – I can’t wait to see all your variations!  If selecting fabrics is overwhelming to you, I’m working on a couple of kit options with great shops, and templates will be available soon, if you prefer not to paper piece.  I’ll have details for you shortly!

    Congrats on your new book and thanks for the great pattern! I will definitely check out what others have done as fabric selection can be kind of hard for me.

    Great samples ladies! That red background has got me thinking! Hmmm, just what color will I use, since I have not started to cut yet.
