Star Quilts and Memorial Day Sewing

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

I hope you have a safe and relaxing long weekend. The weather is lookin’ good for the next few days in my area so I plan to garden by day and sew by night.

Right now is a good time to stock up on quilt patterns and notions for your summer sewing because we’re offering a storewide Memorial Day sale at!

If you’re planning to make a patriotic quilt or Quilts of Valor quilt, check out our kits. Digital patterns are also available to download now. Here are a few of my favorites:



Three Tours


Of Thee I Sing


Star Spangled Beauty (made by me!)


You might want to have Deb Tucker’s Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star template to make LeMoyne Stars without set-in seams. This template is hot, hot, hot! Here are two star quilts, Liz’s LeMoyne Star and Links, made with the template, and the patterns are available by magazine back issue or digital pattern.




Enjoy your weekend, and send us photos of your projects. We love to see what you create.

One thought on “Star Quilts and Memorial Day Sewing

  1. I really like the “Links Digital ” Pattern you showed on this site. I am concerned about the remarks that it is “challenging”. I am a beginner quilter and I love the colors and the pattern in the quilt – do you have better directions for making this? I will order this if it is available.
