Supernova Quilt and Pattern

My newest quilt, Supernova, is finished and the pattern is being released today!  The Supernova pattern is now available in the Meadow Mist Designs pattern shop. 

I love star designs in quilt of all types and thought that it would be fun to combine different stars into one quilt top.  Supernova combines Star in a Star blocks and Ohio Star blocks together into one design.  The pattern is fat quarter friendly and contains lap and twin sizes too! 


The first fabric I picked for the Supernova quilt was actually the light blue / gray background fabric.  It is FreeSpirit Gray, but is really more of a blue in person.  From there, I picked some fat quarters already in my stash in navy, red, and yellow.  

Prints - Navy prints by Carolyn Friedlander, red print by Bonnie and Camille, plaid print by Cotton & Steel, and yellow print by Maureen Cracknell
Fabric A - Bella White by Moda
Bg Fabric - FreeSpirit Solids in Gray 

I have a bolt of a yellow Country Fair print by Denyse Schmidt that really went well with the yellow Maureen Cracknell print on the front of the quilt.  Then I bound the quilt in a red polka dot print to finish the quilt.


For the quilting, I decided that I wanted to add texture to the quilt without taking away from the piecing so I went with an allover design using my favorite paisley shape.  Because the paisley shapes are larger, the quilting does go pretty quickly.  I used Aurifil 50 wt thread in Dove for the quilting, the light gray thread blended well with both the background and the white areas.


The Supernova pattern is written at a confident beginner level and is fat quarter friendly. The flying geese are made using the no-waste method.

The pattern contains instructions to make both a lap sized quilt and a twin sized quilt.

Supernova is on sale in my pattern shop as a digital pattern at a special introductory price of $9.50 through Sunday, March 28th.  Once you make a Supernova of your own, you can share it via social media using the hashtag #SupernovaQuilt.

I would like to thank Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl for her amazing tech editing skills and quilting ideas.  I would also like to thank the Warm Company for the Warm & White batting (my favorite!).


I love playing with EQ8 to see how patterns look in different colorways.  It is always so interesting to render quilts with different prints, background colors, and more.  Here are some alternative colorways I came up with.


I have been more and more active on Pinterest (check me out here).  If you would like to save Supernova for later on your Pinterest boards, here is a pinnable image.

Remember, you can get the Supernova pattern in the Meadow Mist Designs pattern shop for only $9.50 through Sunday, March 28th.

  1. I love the design! And the colorways are inspiring. I’ve never thought to use a large floral for the backing. That really adds to your quilt. I have a couple of florals that I haven’t been able to talk myself into cutting. Now I know what to do with them.

  2. This is beautiful Cheryl. Another gorgeous Meadow Mist Designs pattern. :-)

  3. I love the red polka dot print for the binding. Congratulations on the finish and new pattern release!

  4. That's a great pattern. I love stars. And double stars are amazing. I never thought to use polka dots for the binding. Looks great.

  5. I like this pattern a lot and your fabric choices are great.

  6. What a great pattern, and I especially love the blue colorway.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
