Twinkle Pattern -- Now Available! {HBD Pattern Premiere + Giveaway}

I'm so excited to share that our Twinkle pattern is now (finally!) available! A twist on the classic friendship star block, Twinkle uses a nested star design to create a modern star quilt.


I had originally made this quilt last winter for our Island Batik Ambassador hop. This uses the Mountain's Majesty line.




While working on finalizing this pattern, I also made a baby size version of the quilt that is also included in the pattern. I used the Paisley Dot collection for this quilt.




This pattern is now available on Etsy and Craftsy! The pattern includes the directions for three sizes. The baby size version which finishes at 42" x 36" and the throw size version which finishes at 72" x 54". The pattern also includes a twin sized option which adds two borders to the throw size quilt; the twin version will finish at 88" x 70". Here's the twin-sized diagram:


This sparkling quilt pattern is deceptively simple and is perfect for layer cakes and fat quarter bundles. You can actually make all of the blocks for the twin or throw size version from a single layer cake and background fabric!

In celebration of today's pattern premiere, I'll be giving away the last sixteen 10" squares from my Paisley Dot stacker, which I used to make the baby size version of this quilt.


Two entry options:
1. For everyone -- leave a comment with what fabric line or colors you would use to make your own version of Twinkle.
2. If you've made a version of *any* Honey, Bunny, and Doll pattern or quilt along, send me an email (littlebunnyquilts@gmail.com) with a photo of your project for a second entry.

The giveaway will close on Friday, October 19th!

I can't wait to see your version of this fun and easy pattern! Share your pictures on Instagram with the hashtags #HBDpatterns and #TwinkleQuilt! Join the Honey, Bunny, and Doll Facebook Group to be a part of the inner circle to know about pattern premieres and quilt alongs first!

  1. Twinkle is a lovely pattern, Alison! One of my favorite fabric collections is Hello Darling by Bonnie & Camille. I think Twinkle would look awesome in these prints!

  2. Not sure if batiks come in collections, but I have always seen the quilt in batiks (in my mind).

  3. Love the navy - aqua - purple version you made. I could see using the colors of fall such as some cornucopia batiks. I am so happy you created this pattern.

  4. I'm recently crazy about the Grunge "Spot On" fabric line, so I'm pretty sure that's what I'd use. I just ordered my third layer cake (having won one of them, so it's not *such* a crazy indulgence). I keep coming up with new projects for this fun fabric.

  9. I think this would be a great scrappy quilt. I'd use a white background, as you did for your baby-size quilt, and really let my favorite scraps shine. Congrats on this pattern release!
