Jolly Stars by Catherine Butterworth

Catherine Butterworth of Roseville, NSW designed this quilt using Marti Michell’s thick acrylic templates, which allow you to accurately rotary cut multiple layers of fabric at one time. Their revolutionary corner concept means cutting pieces that match perfectly — no pinning or guessing required. Marti Michell products are distributed in Australia by Mac’s Crafts.


Starburst by Jess Frost

Jess Frost of Mount Stuart, Tasmania, made this quilt using a 28-piece fat eighth bundle of Fox Fields by Tula Pink, with the addition of a few fat quarters of fabric from some of Tula’s other collections. “When working with prints, you can use different prints with a similar colour story for each of the contrasting colours,” says Jess. “It is a great quilt to make using a pre-cut bundle of fabrics.”

Woodland Mosaic by Wendy Sheppard

The soft, gentle lavender, caramels and country teals combine in this graceful quilt design by Wendy Sheppard of Dumfries, Virginia, USA. The simple piecing is complemented by the positive/negative layout of the fabrics. It is a wonderful size for a child, but simply double the quantities to make a comforter.
