I have a new free quilt tutorial up on the Moda Bake Shop blog called Cottage Stars. It’s a Layer Cake-friendly tutorial and uses April Rosenthal’s new fabric line Mama’s Cottage. Between the pre-cut Layer Cake squares and a fun method to make 8 half-square triangles from a pair of 10″ x 10″ squares, the blocks come together pretty quickly.
I love the bright colors and cheerful stars and know this quilt will bring a smile to my face through the long winter. 🙂
Now, on to the giveaway! ***Update: Giveaway closed***

After completing my Cottage Stars quilt, I had some Layer Cake squares and extra strips of the backing fabric left over. I’d love to share them with one of you! The U.S. Thanksgiving Day is on Thursday, so to enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me something unusual or different you are thankful for. As for me? I’m thankful for the color yellow. It hasn’t been a go-to color in the past, but lately I have really been appreciating the bright happy yellows that cheer me up in my life. 🙂
If you’d like another chance to enter, you can head over to my instagram post about my Cottage Stars quilt (@centerstreetquilts) and let me know something else you’re grateful for. I’ll be picking one winner from all the comments on this blog post and instagram on Friday morning.
Good luck and happy sewing!
