Today I’m sharing this Bonnie and Camille Star Pop quilt. I’ve had this Shine on B&C fabric bundle in my stash for a few months just waiting for the perfect project. This fun mix of florals made the prettiest Star Pop quilt.
Star Pop is a stash friendly modern star quilt pattern. It’s the newest Quilty Love quilt pattern in the shop.
Bonnie and Camille fabrics were some of my first fabric choices when I started quilting seven years ago. They are the happiest fabrics and so much fun to sew with.
This Star Pop quilt is the large throw size.
Star Pop quilt pattern
Star Pop is a brand new quilt pattern now available in the Quilty Love pattern shop.
This fun and modern star quilt is a play on the classic sawtooth star quilt design. I love stars in my quilts and am always looking for different ways to use them in my quilt designs.
Star Pop is a confident beginner quilt pattern. I kept the piecing simple on this star quilt. The blocks are simple and repetitive.
Fat quarter friendly star quilt
Star Pop is a stash friendly quilt pattern! Not quite a stash buster as you will need yardage for the stars but definitely stash friendly. Star Pop will work great with those curated fat quarter bundles already in your stash or a mix and match of fat quarters.
This fun and modern sawtooth star quilt is scrappy friendly! Each block uses less than 10 inches of fabric so it’s a good one for your scraps. I sewed up this cute blue scrappy baby Star Pop quilt as a sample.

Besides fat quarters, Star Pop is layer cake friendly, scrap friendly, 1/4 yard friendly or fat eighth friendly. You will need the entire 9 inches of quarter yards or fat eighths so use those at your own risk.
Bonnie and Camille Star Pop quilt
This version of Star Pop uses the Bonnie and Camille Shine on fabric line. I’ve had this fabric line in my stash for a few months waiting for the perfect project. I thought Star Pop would look great in these Bonnie and Camille fabrics since they have a scrappy and happy feel.
Since Shine On has so many prints in the fabric line I ended up using about half of each fat quarter. I left the yellow prints out and then used each remaining print at least once in the quilt.
I love how happy and scrappy the final results are. Shine on has a few low volume prints in it so I used one of them for the stars. I chose the cute little rainbows on white fabric.
I’ve really been trying to stay away from plain white fabric in my quilts lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bright white in quilts. But white is not the most practical. As I’ve given away more quilts lately to families, I realize how impractical it is…lol. Plus, I’ve been enjoying the challenge of trying to replace white with something else. Rather than a stark white, I’ve been enjoying using a subtle low volume print instead.
I use white mostly out of convenience. I always have plenty of it on hand and I tend to be impatient and a poor planner when it comes to making a new quilt. I try to use what I have on hand.
Bonnie and Camille fabrics
Bonnie and Camille fabrics were some of my first fabric choices. My local quilt shop at that time carried a few of their prints and I always gravitated towards them. They really are the happiest fabrics and I still enjoy sewing them up.
This fabric line is the Shine On line that came out within the past year or so. Each of their lines coordinates so well together so if you miss one, chances are you will love the next one just as much.
I’ve been on a bit of a Bonnie and Camille sewing kick lately. Recently I sewed up this Scrappy B&C Lucky Log Cabins quilt. If you have a lot of their fabrics in your stash, they make really good scrappy quilts like that Lucky Log Cabins quilt.
Another scrappy Bonnie and Camille quilt I’ve made is this scrappy Ombre Gems quilt.
I’ll have some Bonnie and Camille kits in my shop later this year.
Confident Beginner star quilt pattern
Star Pop is a confident beginner star quilt pattern. Both beginners and novice quilters will enjoy sewing up this sawtooth star quilt. There are at least 17 different ways to make the same design when it comes to quilting so for this star quilt I chose a simpler piecing method.
These star blocks can be sewn together quickly. I like doing all of my cutting up front, making all of the half square triangles up front and then chain piecing my blocks together for fast assembly.
To do this, I’ll stack up all of the block pieces one on top of the other and then chain piece through an entire stack. You will end up completing your blocks all at the same time. I show a photo of this in the quilt pattern.
I’m all about shortcuts these days especially with more limited time with the two year old.
Long Arm quilting by Modern Textiles
Katie of Modern Textiles quilted this Bonnie and Camille Star Pop quilt. We chose this simple and and loopy pantograph called Cake Walk. Katie quilted most of my Star Pop samples and I highly recommend her.
Bonnie and Camille Star Pop quilt – backing and binding
This fun and scrappy Star Pop quilt is finished off with a Peppered Cotton wide back fabric. It’s a nice grey linen wide back and one of my current favorite options. Check out the brand new Wide Back Shop for modern wide backs.
I pretty much only use wide back fabrics on my quilts these days so I’ve begun curating a collection of modern wide back fabrics. Be sure to check it out for your next quilt!
This Star Pop quilt is finished off with a navy fabric from the Shine On fabric line. It’s a cute little rainbow print. The navy binding really pops on this one. You can’t go wrong with a navy binding!
