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.

  4. According to Stanford Medical, It's really the SINGLE reason this country's women live 10 years longer and weigh on average 19 KG lighter than us.

    (And realistically, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some hard exercise and EVERYTHING to do with "how" they eat.)

    P.S, What I said is "HOW", and not "what"...

  7. I just finished making your Starry Way pattern out of French General fabrics & it looks great. I would like to make your Star Watch quilt and I would like to know if the log cabin and star blocks are the same size in both quilt patterns or if the Star Watch blocks are a larger version than the ones in Starry Sky pattern? Thanks
