Introducing Astria

Astria Cover

I'm so thrilled to share another new stellar pattern,  Astria.  Astria means star maiden, and yes, it was inspired by the star strewn Block of the Month Kate Colleran of Seams Like a Dream and I designed, Luminous!

Luminous JMT

You can see Kate and I had had stars on the brain!  Luminous is gorgeous (at least we think so!), and we love all of the different stars in the quilt.  We thought it would be fun to carry on that starry theme  - and Astria was born!

Like most of our collaborative projects, Kate and I played around with color.  And no surprise to most of you - I went with a dark or nighttime color way for Astria.  Felix definitely approved - he finds the rich colors make a nice backdrop for him.


Astria has sparkling stars that glitter and shimmer against a simple field - in my case, deep dark blue.  I love how the icy green and light lavender shine against the deep midnight background.

One of my favorite features of the quilt is not the star blocks (they are great, don't get me wrong), but instead the little shimmer squares that explode out from some of the star blocks.  They provide a nice little pop of color and make me think of star showers.

Another interesting feature of our star maiden quilt is that it explores the same star shape in three different sizes, each with their own unique setting.  

Kate's stars shine in a sparkling citrus sky that evokes tropical sunrises.  It has colors that bring to mind hot days, warm blue waters and summer.
