Star Jump 4, and a giveaway!

I had the great pleasure to recently test a new 

pattern for Jess @ Elven Garden!


I'm trying to sew from my stash this year, 

so I chose to use solids and spots,

in co-ordinating colours.




I had some Ikea "Numbers" for the backing.



I kept the quilting to a minimum....

utilitarian is what I call it!


I intend it to be used and loved!


I have gifted this to a friend who is having her 

4th baby!

Jess calls this pattern "Star Jump"!


And as I was #4 of 4 children, 

I named my quilt "Star Jump 4"!

Jess has kindly offered one of these "Star Jump" 

patterns to a lucky reader of my blog!

So, you know the routine....

leave a comment and I'll randomly draw a winner 

next week!

In the meantime, if you'd like to buy a copy, it's 

available here @ payhip!

Happy sewing!

  1. Nice work Suz! (and Jess, of course). Less quilting is more cuddly, for sure. Plus it's a lot quicker!

  2. What a fun quilt, especially with all those spotty fabrics! I really like the way the squares bring the blocks together like an irish chain quilt. I'm sure this will be a quilt that is used and loved!

  29. No need to enter me in the drawing, but I wanted to comment on your darling quilt! I love the idea of "less" quilting, esp. if it is for a wee one, as those quilts are so much softer and more drapable (and wrap able!) A terrific finish--so cute!
