New quilt design – Expanded Broken Star

What a great sewing time at home in my studio! During the Quick Star workshops, students request additional designs.

Pushing the envelope by¬†adding more layers, I am developing expanded designs that will become workshops in the near future. I would love to know your thoughts about this design¬†‚ąí please comment below, or send an e-mail to me at [remove spaces] jan @

This design was created using left-over 3″ diamonds cut from undersea fish and ocean fabrics (from a Mexican Riviera cruise workshop). I arranged the loose diamonds in a fairly symmetric setting, and drafted the smaller diamonds to create a more complex outside row.¬† There is currently no published pattern for this variation, and it will be offered in the near future as a workshop.

    I really like the expanded design. In fact I love it!! While I don’t have Quick Star Quilts and Beyond yet I have all your other books. I hope that you publish this pattern at least as an epattern sometime to compliment the book. I would love to see other patterns that you come up with as well.

    Hello, Tonya! Thanks for your interest! I’ll be offering the pattern during workshops. At present, I don’t really have a method to sell e-patterns, although that isn’t an impossibility! Thanks for your comment!
