Simple Celestial

Meet Simple Celestial:

If you’re familiar with my Celestial Star pattern, you’ll recognize that Simple Celestial has the same design elements, just simpler.
Celestial Star is a 12 point block, which can be a little more tricky to get all of those center points to line up just right. So I decided to create an option that would be a lot easier, but still have similar creative options!

This is a block I made when I did a paper piecing demo for my quilt guild in North Dakota. I love the fun fussy cutting elements. The states are places we’ve lived, and I need to add Iowa, Mississippi, Texas, Germany, England, and Vienna. I think that’s all the places I’ve lived throughout my life! πŸ˜‰

A progression design layout for Simple Celestial

I always love playing around with different design options when I create a new pattern – that’s partially how I know I’m done tweaking, is when there are a lot of options.

This is a progression design I came up with for the block just above it! The block is the second row from the top. I think this would be fun to see as a real quilt!

Here are some other design options that you could make with Simple Celestial:

These are all based off that same first layout idea, I just colored them a little different. I think this looks so fun!!

I am in the process of making my kiddos their own twin size bed quilts, and my oldest daughter just decided that she wants that last layout for her quilt! I’m so excited, I think it’s perfect for her personality! πŸ™‚ Watch for updates… πŸ˜‰
