Join us on a new 12-month quilting journey as we bring you a fabulous quilt designed especially for TQS by Sarah Vedeler. Sedona Star is a spectacular medallion quilt that features a beautiful center star surrounded by a charming array of appliqué elements.

Each month we will provide a photo and detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, as well as full-size patterns. Sedona Star finishes at approximately 88” x 88” inches. One version features a total of sixteen different print fabrics, including colorful shades of blue, pink, purple, yellow, red and gold; however, Sarah is providing another alternative color option and instructions for each month as well. Fabric kits for both colorways area available in limited quantities through the TQS Shoppe.

Actually, no. For a lot of the quilt I only got cutting instructions, templates and pictures and I made it from that. I'm a really visual person anyway. It was necessary because poor Sarah was also trying to complete her new Jazzilicious design collection at the time and was swamped. I take it as a compliment that she had faith in me to make it without instructions for some parts. :) However, after all was said and done she did send me copies of all of the instructions that you all will be using to make your quilts so that I could read them over for corrections. None were needed as far as I could tell. I didn't go over cutting instructions because I'd never have known if they needed correction without actually re-making the quilt (which I intend to do, seriously this quilt is fun!). So if there are any mistakes, it's largely my fault and not Sarah's, so you can blame me.

As far as leaving the individual pieces separate and piecing it once all of the blocks are done, that is entirely up to you. It more depends on what type of quilter you are. If you want to stay dedicated to the project, I'd put it together as you go so that you see how *absolutely beautiful* it is and want to keep going and avoid ending up with another UFO. Me? I'm results driven, so once I have everything ready to go, I power-sew until it's done. I believe I put the entire quilt together in a Friday late night and a Saturday evening-into-late-night.

If you'd prefer to wait to put it together once all of the blocks are done, Sarah and I can certainly help you with any questions you may have!

I see -- that makes sense! :) I'll try to keep going each month and not save the assembly for the end. Good to hear your view on it.

I guess I was kind of lucky with how I did mine in that it was left in pieces (which I stored in two large plastic bins) and all of the individual pieces were put together in a weekend! So I didn't have to worry much about space. :)

You mean b/c you had all the instructions at one time, right? Or should we leave it in pieces as well. ???

Well, my design wall is large, but I already have parts of three projects on it. Guess I'll just have to move things around when I need it for the BOM, then take it down between times. Ultimately I plan on using the quilt for king size bed, unless I change my mind before I finish. That's why I decided on the Buttons and Blooms instead of the bright colors, which were very tempting. I still have two other TQS quilts that are unfinished and set aside for now. Someday, thay may all be finished...I hope!

Since I don't need another large quilt to try to display - not enough walls - I'm going to try to make this one larger with borders, if I can figure out how to make it look good, and use it on our bed.

Eighty eight inches, girls! Where is everyone planning to store it all year?

I guess I need another room for sewing (have 2) and put in a large design wall so it can hang there. :)

Month two has no circular sewing except sewing all of the month 2 units to month 1. It's much easier than the circle for month one. It's fun! I loved month 2's blocks!
That's great to hear, i will enjoy contructing my month 2 blocks :D

I like the name Whopper! I think this quilt needs a nickname....
