Wish Upon a Star and Purple Sunrise
We choose this pattern for our exciting Block of the Month 2022. Don't let the 5* scares you off!
With our helpful tutorials we'll guide through this glorious pattern every step of the way. And with a supporting Facebook group, specially for "Wish Upon a Star" and "Purple Sunrise" you will enjoy making this fabulous quilt.
We are aware that not all stores have the required fabrics in stock yet and we are very sorry about that. In spite of that we have decided to start with our new Block of the Month because we received many requests to start.
Until then you can already check out the tutorials and pictures. And if you have already bought the pattern, you may want to make a copy of it and try out the difficult parts with some fabric scraps.
Welcome to our 'Wish Upon a Star' and 'Purple Sunrise' Block of the Month website page.
My name is Jacqueline de Jonge and I am the designer of this quilt. I am also the owner of the BeColourful brand.
I am thrilled that you are thinking of participating in our new Block of the Month and hope you enjoy the project.
Through our Block of the Month, we aim to challenge quilters to experiment with new techniques and style while having fun and learning more about the BeColourful patterns in the process.
And who knows, maybe you'll be so inspired after making this quilt that you'll want to make another design. There is plenty of choice ;)
My very first paper pieced quilt that I made had a feathered star. I really loved that star. So elegant, special and unique that I couldn't resist making it.
But oh, how hard it was. Especially if you have no experience at all in paper piecing. You can see that if you look closely at the design from back then. The circles are not really circular and the star points don't fit in any way either.
But now, after everything I have designed so far, it is time for a new version of a feathered star.
I had 'Wish Upon a Star' ready for the 2021 collection and thought how fun it would be to start another new Block of the Month. This design lends itself perfectly to that.
And so the idea of designing 'Purple Sunrise' was born. The same design as 'Wish Upon a Star' but in beautiful orange and purple colors, like an amazing sunrise.
And so it happened. Together with my sister Bridget, we took pictures and lots of short videos that we put together into instructive and helpful tutorials.
I think these videos can be a great help in making this quilt.
We look forward to seeing your (color) versions of this Block of the Month.
Lots of fun sewing!
