Star Spangled Heart pattern is here!

Hey everyone!  I’ve been working diligently to get my latest pattern, Star Spangled Heart, ready for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.  It’s now available through Craftsy, and I hope you like it as much as I do!

This mini wall hanging is 18 1/2″ square, and the pattern includes a smaller, 10 1/2″ square version.  The Sawtooth star works perfectly to form the left side of the heart.  It’s a fat quarter-friendly pattern, or you could dig into your scrap pile and make it scrappy.

I used my walking foot and a serpentine stitch to do most of the quilting.  Straight lines in the blue background add definition to the corners.  I completed this wall hanging in two days, including the binding.

I’ve had a fat quarter bundle of Daysail by Bonnie & Camille for Moda sitting on a shelf waiting for the perfect project.  This is definitely a good pairing!  I love the addition of aqua in the border and binding.  You can see that I added a hanging sleeve (which still needs to be hand stitched down) which adds a little versatility in how I can hang it.

You could also make a nested Sawtooth star by following the cutting instructions for the large and small versions.  The 4″ star fits right inside the 8″ star.  That’s on my “to do” list for this weekend.  Here’s what a scrappy version of that would look like in EQ7.

The pattern includes several layout options including a table runner and larger wall hanging made with four large blocks.

I’m heading back into my sewing room to dig through some scraps and work on my next Star Spangled Heart quilt.  I think this one might become a pillow because my blue and white chair could use one!

How’s your summer sewing going?  Some people have more time to sew in the summer and others are too busy with kids at home or on vacation to fit in much time with the sewing machine.  If you end up making my Star Spangled Heart quilt, I would love to see it.  You can also use the hashtag #starspangledheart on Instagram and share it there, too.  It’s always such a compliment when someone makes a project from one of my patterns or tutorials!

  2. Hi Julie!!!

    I absolutely LOVE your Star Spangled Heart!!!! I just bought your pattern & I’m in my sewing room making some! I want to hang one on the outside side door in my front entry way between the glass door & my inside door!!! Eeeekkk!!!! How adorable will that be!! Everyone will love it for sure!! ❤️❤️
    Then one on my door as you enter my garage!!! Hmmmm I just might be able to find another spot too!!!
    Funny thing is…I’ve been looking for a nice pattern to show off the season! I love July when the colors of our flag are everywhere! We are just so blessed to live in the country we do! And! In a heart! Just so perfect!!

    Also, all the other patterns you gave us to choose from!! ❤️❤️ That’s so kind of you!! Good job!!

    Thank you Julie!!!

    I had a question….you mentioned that you had used the serpentine stitch. I have a 440 QE also. Could you tell me what stitch # that is? How perfect for this project!!
    Have a wonderful day & thankyou once again!

  3. Julie, what method do you use to hang a 10-1/2″ or a little larger quilt on a wall? I’d like to Jane a small wall hanging in our RV motorhome.

  4. Morning Julie, at least it is here. I’ve purchased the pattern and hope to have it out on front porch by Friday. It will be scrappy. I’m also envisioning an cancer throw out of this pattern. I’ll link back it it turns out like I think it will.
    One of these days I’m going to make that bunny. 😉

  5. Julie, when you say you used a serpentine stitch for quilting, are you referring to an embroidery stitch? I have a Bernina 570. Might I have a similar stitch at my disposal? I made placemats with quilting that looked similar to yours but I used a stencil to achieve the regular wavy lines.

    1. Hi Patti, After doing a little research, that stitch is called a running stitch. It’s #4, located on the main stitch panel of my Bernina 770QE and the 440QE. I adjusted the stitch length to 3.0 and the width is 5.0.

  6. I really like the simplicity of the pattern, and would like to make some scrappy ones. My Birthday is the 4th! I’d like to make a couple as gifts.
    Thanks Julie

  7. Hi Julie, You continue to amaze me. I don’t know how you get all these blocks designed and finished. Summer is gardening season for me. You know…corn, potatoes, green beans, sweet peas, so I don’t do much quilting. I try to do that in the fall and winter. Especially when it’s 10 below and freezing outside. Anyway, I love this design and I would like to make it for my husband who is very patriotic. I’d make it into a wall quilt for his shop.
    Lovely job! As usual.
    Happy Quilting!

  8. I have been looking for a patriotic mini quilt to fit on my 12 inch wire hanger and this is perfect! I probably will make another small border so it will fit just right. I just downloaded it and can’t wait to make it…………….Looks so easy and love the variations of a runner & pillow. Also, I have been perfecting my “serpentine” stitch on my Bernina so I can quilt little things myself. Thanks so much for the adorable pattern. Happy 4th of July to you & your family……………Nettie from Spanish Fork, UT

  9. How delightful! My daughter has been asking for a patriotic wallhanging and this will be perfect! Summer means mowing and sewing, sewing in bits and pieces, that is.

  10. You have combined two of my favourite patchwork blocks – hearts and stars to create a stunning design. I look forward to making this. Thank you.

  11. I love your pattern!!!! I have a friend with a July birthday for whom it will be PERFECT!! There are a multitude of people I know who would enjoy getting it, so those will be further down on my to-do list. I LOVE all the options you give–such great flexibility with a very creative pattern. I’m heading to Craftsy to get it right now!! 🙂

  12. Am a newbie in quilting…I have done different 12 inch blocks…practice makes oops, but trying…this is a pretty quilt…I believe I’ll give it a try…PS: I saw your tutorial on hand sewing a binding…just finish a project…very pleased…thank you…

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
