Stashbuster Tuesday - Winter Celebrations!

 It is StashBUSTER Tuesday!   Once again, I've partnered up with some fabulous quilt designers for Quilt Block Mania!   It's all about Winter Celebrations this Month!  

With this month being crazy busy, I'm already sending 4 patterns to the printer this week. I decided to picked a favorite Block from a published pattern.  

In Flight is a fabulous pattern and would be perfect to make in those favorite holiday fabrics you've picked up over the years,  If In Flight were written today,  it could go into my StashBUSTER series, as it only uses one tool, the Studio 180 Design Wing Clipper.

In Flight by Michelle Renee Hiatt

You can make this fabulous quilt with fat eighths, fat quarters, stash, scraps, the possibilities are endless.    In Flight pattern offers four sizes; Baby, Throw, Double and King.  The Double and King allows you to use all those large prints you've been collect.  Whether you make this with with Christmas fabric or not, it is a quick and fun quilt.   Psst.. with all the babies on the way, it is a perfect Baby Quilt!.   

IN FLIGHT PATTERN can be purchased in my Online Shop:  PURCHASE HERE

So, this Tuesday, I'm offering the Christmas Star, used in my In Flight pattern, as my free download.  See details below for my download, as well as the other 23 Quilt Block Mania designers!

Quilt Block Mania - NEW FREE BLOCK

  • All of these blocks finish at 12″ x 12″. 
  • You can download all the Blocks for free, or just your favorites. 
As mentioned above, I'm offering my Christmas Star Block as this week's free download.  
Christmas Star
The Christmas Star is made up of Flying Geese!   I've provided step-by-step instructions in my download.  It comes together easily with the help of  the Studio 180 Design Wing Clipper.

All of the designers are using the same color plan in their Blocks.   
  • Therefore you could combine this quilt block with other designer blocks, in the series, and put them into a Sampler Quilt of your own design.
  • Or, several of the designers, including me, are offering patterns, for purchase, using our Block. We've done the math and they are really cool.😊

  • If you scroll all the way down you’ll find links to all the fabulous quilt blocks in this series.  We are hoping to do this a few times a year, so stay tuned!  When I can align Quilt Block Mania with my Stashbuster Series, I will.
