Star Patch in Pastels

It's always fun to see how different a quilt looks with a change in fabrics and/or color palette, and this scrappy quilt, featured in the December 2013 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting, is no exception. And of course, it's even more fun when the versions we see use some of our fabrics!

Quilt tester Laura Boehnke used the Marblehead Pleasing Pastels collection by Ro Gregg for Paintbrush Studio to make her version of Marcie Patch’s Star Patch quilt. We love the soft hues of this alternate colorway, and since it's less scrappy than the original version, you can do some strip piecing to save time!
