Star Watch: a sunny quilt featuring Calico Days by Lori Holt


I’m popping in today to share a cheerful, farm-fresh version of my Star Watch pattern, this time featuring the Calico Days collection by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.


Sewn up in a sunny collection like this, Star Watch becomes a happy, scrappy jelly roll quilt. Simple log cabins provide the foundation for the quilt, while a row of sunny stars adds a playful twinkle.


Calico Days was released by Lori Holt a few years ago, but she has numerous collections that are just as darling. Any vintage-inspired fabric lines would shine with this pattern.


For my Calico Days version, I omitted the inner border called for in the pattern, so the completed quilt is just a bit smaller. This will be a wonderful throw or cuddling quilt to gift to someone!

My Star Watch pattern calls for using some of the jelly roll strips to create a scrappy binding, which is a fun finishing touch and so easy to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a difference when changing up the fabric colourway in a pattern. I love it in both fabric choices. The first has a woodsy autumn feel, and the second is perfect for spring - so cheery. Your pattern is perfect for both. Love the star blocks and the pop of different fabric piece set in each.
