Sedona Star

This Colorful, Block-of-the-Month Quilt is Enlightening and Inspiring

The Sedona Star Quilt was created as the 2012 Block-of-Month quilt for The Quilt Show — an online TV show. Here’s the story behind this vibrant, desirable design…

It was spring break 2011. My girls and I were getting ready to go to Sedona, AZ for a few days of hiking and relaxation. Ricky Tims, one of the co-stars from The Quilt Show (and one of my quilting heroes), called and asked if I would be interested in creating a Block-of-the-Month quilt for the show. Of course, I agreed.

During the approximately 3-hour drive to Sedona my mind was bursting with ideas for the design of this quilt. I didn’t want it to be a typical quilt based on squares. It had to be more special than that. I decided I wanted it to be based on a circular medallion.

With loads of ideas floating around in my head, the girls and I arrived in Sedona. I immediately pulled out my laptop to start capturing the ideas and put them into something more concrete. I played with 8-, 9-, 10- and 12-point stars, creating a basic outline for the quilt. After submitting various design concepts to Ricky and Alex Anderson (Ricky’s co-host), we agreed on the 9-point variation colorful design you see pictured here.

The Sedona Star quilt pattern features appliqué that can be finished by either hand or machine. The appliqué shapes are from the GO! Heather Feather #1 and GO! Heather Feather #2 dies. In addition to the bright, jewel-toned version of the quilt, a second version featuring more subtle earth tones was also created. 

NOTE : If you’d like to make Sedona Star with embroidered appliqué, then you need to purchase the Sedona Surprise design collection in addition to the Sedona Star quilt pattern.

Many have won awards with this 88”-square quilt, including blue ribbons and Best-of-Show awards. I’ve seen some amazingly gorgeous versions of it. Sedona Star has turned into quite the star. Not only has it been featured on calendars, it was also even used as the featured art once for an early morning Sunday TV news broadcast.


  • Full-sized templates for all appliqué shapes
  • Full-sized templates for paper piecing
  • Detailed instructions to complete this project in 12 months
  • Appliqué, which can be done by hand or machine
  • Opportunities to learn all types of different techniques, including sewing circles into holes, Y seams and paper piecing.

If life ever starts feeling dull and drab, this is the perfect quilt to add a mega dose of “spectacular” to your life.

To add embroidered appliqué use the Sedona Surprise design collection.
