My name is Amy Heaton. I have been quilting since 2003 when I accompanied by my grandmother to the local fabric store to pick up a few items. It all began with a pieced butterfly quilt pattern, some purple fat quarters, a pair of scissors and matboard for templates (my grandmother actually owns a picture framing business). It didn't take but two years for me to acquire my very own sewing machine, rotary cutter and a copy of the Electric Quilt 2005 software. I have always been an artistic person. Once I had the software in my hands, I found myself taking a laptop with me to work and designing quilts on my lunch hour. I just couldn't get enough. I started my website in 2007 and began selling my designs under the business name Country Junk'tion. By 2010 my block-of-the-month series had gained worldwide popularity with customers as far away as New Zealand. Most of my patterns have a country flair, but there is a little something for everyone in each pattern I design.View all patterns by designer (30) »
The Seeing Stars quilt is made up completely of squares, half-square triangles and quarter-square triangles. The smaller 12" star blocks are arranged to surround the larger center 24" star block. The added half-square triangle border with cornerstone squares creates the jagged sawtooth look. Great pattern for even the beginning quilter.
