The Star Crossed quilt pattern is here! You can get this beginner-friendly quilt pattern now in the Suzy Quilts shop. It will include instructions for multi-color and limited-color versions. In addition to Star Crossed, we also released its sister pattern, Star Crossed 2.0 — a slightly more advanced version of this design. If you want to make both quilts, you can even get a Star Crossed pattern bundle.
Yes, Star Crossed 2.0 does include Y-seams, but would I leave you hangin' and not give you a tutorial video? Of course not!
A mini Star Crossed sew along will start on September 29, so now is the perfect time to start shopping for fabric! I'll post Star Crossed 2.0 fabric requirements early next week. SPOILER! The multi-color 2.0 version is FQ friendly!
OK, but back to the original Star Crossed...in this blog post, you'll see examples of eight different Star Crossed quilts (including some kits!), get the fabric requirements so you can shop, and learn about the design inspiration behind our newest pattern.

Juliet Star Crossed Quilt
How cool is this — Sarah Made has exclusively made a coordinating pair of Romeo and Juliet quilt kits for the Star Crossed quilt pattern! The set is inspired by the well-known line from Shakespeare's timeless play Romeo and Juliet:
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life,
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Doth, with their death, bury their parents' strife.
The Juliet quilt was quilted by Trace Creek Quilting using the panto Simple Butterfly by Melissa Kelly of Sew Shabby Quilting, and you can get a kit here. Want to make both Star Crossed quilts? Keep reading to see Romeo!
Romeo Star Crossed Quilt
And here's Romeo. Don't they look great together? Imagine these two folded up on your couch next to each other. What a fun decoration and meaningful story in these quilts! Get the Romeo Star Crossed quilt kit from Sarah Made here. The Romeo quilt was quilted by Trace Creek Quilting using the panto Retro Wall by Melissa Kelly at Sew Shabby Quilting.
If you make the Romeo and Juliet Star Crossed set, it would be so fun to listen to the play Romeo and Juliet while you're sewing! Or you could just listen to Love Story by Taylor Swift on repeat 🙂
Bright Star Crossed Quilt
If you love bold colors, Sarah Made has one more kit you'll love. The almost neon colors of her strips glow against the blue background. What a masterful use of color! Order your Bright Star Crossed quilt kit here.
Patriotic Star Crossed Quilt
Stars and stripes in one patriotic quilt! This version of Star Crossed lets you hold on to a little bit of that summertime magic in a quilt you're sure to bring out every summer.

Made and quilted by Lilo Whitener-Fey of Trace Creek Quilting using the panto Strawberry Fields by Melissa Kelly at Sew Shabby Quilting. Get the kit here!

Star Crossed From Your Stash
Is the Star Crossed pattern stash-friendly? You bet! Our incredible tech editor Jessica Schunke of Blue Sky Modern Craft made this version using fabrics from her own personal stash. By mixing solids and blenders with one bold, large-scale print, she was able to draw attention to one beautiful print without overshadowing it. And that scrappy binding is a fun touch for a scrappy quilt!
