Check out the beautiful block that our lovely Pattern Tester, Bonnie, designed for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issue!

The first three people to comment will get a free copy!
Bonnie is always coming up with the most gorgeous free patterns for us, so I thought I’d ask her what inspires her to create and here is what she had to say: “It’s the fabric! When I see a wonderful fabric or group of fabrics, I enjoy playing with the possibilities.”
I also asked Bonnie what her inspiration was for this quilt block, and she said, “I love the old traditional star blocks. So I modified one and came up with this variation to show off the pretty floral print with narrow framing strips highlighting the center.”
Well, keep it up Bonnie–we all love your patterns and look forward to seeing more of them!! Download some of Bonnie’s most recent designs on our website. Available in shops now are European Taupe II, Matsuda-wa, Cherie, and Caffeine Cafe.
