Colleen’s “Twin Star” Quilts

Did you know that the 12″ and 6″ block patterns for the 2020 “Sisters” Quilt Along are still available for your use? Just click on “Sisters BOM QAL” in the menu and scroll through all twelve designs.

Recently my friend, Colleen, wanted to honor a policeman friend by making a wall quilt for him. Since she had purchased a panel with police related icons and images, she hoped to use them in some way. We measured and determined the images were about 4 1/2″ square. I suggested that she consider the “Sisters” patchwork designs since several have 4″ finished center squares. “Twin Star” seemed the perfect design for the quilt!

One of our quilt guild’s charities is the NICU at Cape Fear Hospital, and our baby quilt chairman is pleading for more quilts. Colleen found an hilarious theme print sure to bring smiles to a baby’s face. Zoom in to see the sharks eating cookies and submarine sandwiches.

Thanks for sharing your quilt projects, Colleen. It’s great that you used the quilt design beyond your “Sisters” sampler quilt project.

  1. My guild just had a panel palooza presentation where fussy cutting panel pieces into the centers of stars was one of the repeat methods of making use of panel materials. You have so many great stars / blocks on the Sisters QAL too 🙂

  2. Love those examples. I’m thinking of doing a similar thing for a “vintage linen” wall quilt… that is, when I actually force myself to finish the last row of the one I’m working on.
