Magazine Cover Quilts, Day Five
Here we are on Day Five of the Magazine Cover Quilts and I have two that feature stars. The first is Blast Off! that let the fabric of planets do a lot of the heavy lifting. I just needed to stitch some blocks that looked like rockets (ok. maybe only a little). This is an updated version of Job's Tears that I converted to paper piecing.

And here is the stylized shot as seen inside. I gave this quilt to a young boy almost 15 years ago. He's on his way to college now!

You may remember this next quilt as I featured it in a Block of the Month in 2015. It's my Galaxy of Stars.

Stay tuned for more on this issue. The senior editors joked that this was the "Debby Kratovil Issue" as it contained SEVEN of my quilts and a pattern feature for 4 FREE blocks. Never before and never since have I had so many in one issue. Next week I plan on featuring a few of them and even offering a few FREE patterns.
Here's a better shot of my Galaxy of Stars quilt.

Hope you enjoyed my Magazine Cover Quilts. I have more, but I'll give you a break for now.
