Fernweh Quilt Pattern Release

Today is Fernweh quilt pattern release day!!

I hope you like enormous star blocks, because that’s what Fernweh is ALL ABOUT!

Let’s dig in!

Fernweh Quilt

Fernweh Quilt comes in four sizes: Pillow size 24″, Throw 72″x72″, Twin 72″x96″ and queen/king 96″x96″.

This is a beginner quilt pattern! The only skills used are straight line sewing and snowballs. Video tutorial is included for the snowballs.

A bit about the pattern

I am endlessly fascinated with star quilt blocks. You could easily get lost in a rabbit hole of all the different ways to put them together. The Fernweh pattern (pronounced FIEN-VEE, the German word for wanderlust) is a star within a star block. The inner portion is the ever-familiar sawtooth star, while the outer portion looks as if it’s bursting to life. 

I couldn’t settle on a style while designing Fernweh. So instead, I’ve created the pattern in two different styles of quilts. There’s the style pictured on the cover (version 1), and a reversed style that you’ll see within the pattern. 

Because the two patterns are not a “true” reversal of foreground and background, I’ve written them as two separate patterns, both comprising the Fernweh pattern. Simply choose which version you’d like to make and skip to that section.
