Faceted Ohio Star in Printology {Blog Hop + Giveaway}

Today I'm the host for the Printology blog hop! Thank you to Benartex's Contempo Studio for asking me to participate! I made a new addition to our Faceted mini collection -- a Faceted Ohio Star -- and a pattern will be coming soon!



Printology is designed by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr for Contempo. It's a really fun variety of prints in beautiful, rich colors!


I used a strip pack of Printology as well as some yardage of a Contempo Essentials print for my project.


Like our two other Faceted patterns (Faceted Churn Dash and Faceted Friendship Star) the Faceted Ohio Star pattern uses 2.5" strips and squares to create a big block quilt. I started by cutting some of the Printology strips into 2.5" squares.


Some of the squares are used to make HSTs with the background fabric, and some squares are used to make HSTs with two different Printology fabrics. These Faceted quilts are perfect for bonus triangles and scraps!


The HSTs are used to create larger triangle blocks and 9-patches of HSTs. The triangle units are combined to make hourglasses:




...and the 9-patches are combined to make a 36-patch for the center of the block:


...and then all of the parts are combined to create the big block!


The remainder of the HSTs are used to create the pieced border.




For the quilting, I quilted meanders in the background sections and loops in the Ohio Star piecing and the border. For the binding, I used the partially used 2.5" strips to make a scrappy binding.


I had so much fun working with this fabric line and love the rich colors! I love the peach and magenta combination in this fabric I used on the back of the quilt.




If you'd like to win some fat quarters of Printology for yourself, here's three chances:

1. Leave a comment with your favorite Printology fabric -- click here to see all of the swatches!

Okay question: the Waves Rose is my favourite with Sketch Teal a very close second!

  97. I like the blocks colour ways, the teal and butter. However, the fabric really plays well together as a range, and is something that I would buy as a range rather than occasional fat quarters I think. From a scrap quilter, that is high praise!
