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.

What size is the quilt? If it is a wall quilt, I would try some embellishments for the eyes. Could be as simple as a shiny black button. I'm sure you will find the perfect eyes. Good luck.

Sometimes the smallest details are the hardest part. I have a quilt all appliqued except for the eyes on the hens and roosters and I can`t decide how or what to use...

Designers syndrome :D :D :D

I know exactly what you mean Becky! I have my color picture and as I am following that each month, I am also changing out colors here and there! I take my scraps and lay them on the design wall in different color combinations to 'test drive' a color change before I cut and sew. I think I spend as much time playing with color changes as I do sewing the blocks when I finally decide! LOL

I regularly peruse the Sedona Star Show and Tell! It is so inspiring! I am just now getting started with mine and looking at the beautiful BOM's posted there helped me with my color choices and placement. Also reading the posts on each's months thread for helpful hints, pitfalls to be avoided, and general banter about each month, has been very helpful!

Thanks to all the ladies who went before me into unknown piecing territory!

PS. I am now working on Month 3 and as the quilt is growing, so is my enthusiasm for working on it! More pics will be posted soon!
