The Star Anise layout includes three distinct groups to create an 80” square quilt. A circular center sits in the middle of the quilt with a diameter of 62”. A 4” wide ring surrounds the center for a total increased diameter of 70”. Then, a square up border brings the quilt to 80” square. This pattern was created by Quiltworx as a limited release project to show off the Star Anise Tonga Batik Mini Collection designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, from Timeless Treasures. There are only 500 copies of this pattern available, and 50 kits, which include the fabrics on the coversheet were made. Kits are available in quilt shops across the US and also in the Quiltster Marketplace at http://www.quiltster.com. Quiltworx used Quiltster, a fabric auditioning and design enhancement application to design the quilt on the coversheet. If you want to use the software to create your own colorway of this design, it is available on a monthly or annual subscription basis that allows quilters to play with pre-designed blocks and current fabric collections to find their favorite combination before purchasing the foundation papers and fabrics for their quilt.
