Vote NOW for the 2017 Design Star

Wow! Has it been a year already? It’s hard to believe that we are already back here voting to find out the person whose face will claim the missing spot among our other talented Design Stars below.

Design Star 2017

In the final round, we asked Kris, Andrea, and Karen to curate *the* bundle that they want subscribers to receive in the 12th and final month of the club. In fact the winning bundle will be the final bundle, shipping in May. Scroll to the bottom and cast your vote for the bundle you would like to see come to life. Voting is open through February 22nd.

“Though not the original intent, this bundle ended up representing the colors of my house: the golds and teals of my living room, the limey-green of the guest room, the gray of the wood floors throughout my home and even some of the pink from my daughter’s room. I started with an inspiration fabric that DID NOT make it into the final selection, and the dinosaur print was added late in the process… and I love the way it pulls it all together! There are so many other pints in this grouping that I love — from some “classic” Tula, Cotton + Steel (who says you can’t use a holiday print in a non-holiday quilt?), and Handcrafted, to some brand new Libs Eliot (those skulls!). Also can’t go wrong adding in some Grunge — there’s a shade that’ll fit with nearly any project.

I do love to mix prints from various designers and collections, and tend to take an “anything goes” attitude — whatever strikes my fancy at the moment is “right” enough for me. I hope you like it!”

“All the things I love about fabric are tied up in this final bundle. The mix includes some of my favourite designers, including Carolyn Friedlander, Rebecca Bryan, Erin Dollar, Rifle Paper Co, Vanessa Christenson, and Karen Lewis. To let the stellar prints shine, I’ve included solids and ombres to act as a “background”. I wanted to add some texture by using linen/cotton blends for a quarter of the fabrics. Contrast is created with the dark ground of some of the prints against the paler coloured fabrics. And some gold metallic shimmer gives the whole bundle a little extra something!”


Karen @quiltynursekaren

“My final bundle is inspired by the bright vibrant colors of spring.  I have always had a love for the color yellow and just how cheerful it is.  I love the look of mixing small scale prints and large scale prints, of mixing florals with geometrics, and of adding a bit of sparkle with metallics.  This round was quite difficult because there are so many gorgeous new fabrics to pick from!  Hopefully my bundle will bring a bit of cheer and sunshine to the competition.”


Thank you to everyone for your participation in this contest. We couldn’t do it without you! If you are interested in seeing past bundles that have come from the club and contest, you can check them out here.
