Free Motion Quilt Chaos Stars #447

Quilting design time! I'm in the mood to play with a very random, free form Foundational Design and easily came up with this beautiful Chaos Stars design:

This is a variation on Coin Chain, only this time instead of leaving the circles empty, we're filling them with straight line stars. Which design do you like best? They're very similar, and both designs will be very easy to quilt in the blocks, sashing, or borders of your next quilt!

Let's learn how to quilt Chaos Stars in this quilting video:

Chaos Stars will definitely help you build great skills for Echo Quilting. It's rather organic which means even if your echoing isn't perfect, the design will still look great on your quilts.

Let's go quilt,

  1. Cool design. As I was watching the video, I got to thinking that it could be a neat design if you only echoed 3-5 times and then started another line of stars coming from a different angle. And then what if each time you fill the remaining, sectioned & unquilted space with stars (or just circles), they were smaller, so they fit the space better? Like you've said before, Leah, one design starts sparking more ideas!


  2. I think they're great, the spikes in the circles gives them n extra zing.
