I'm excited to introduce the Stargazer Quilt! Right Triangles from the book, Modern Triangle Quilts are arranged in a compelling symmetry of color and shape to create a stunning and enrapturing quilt.
As shown the Stargazer Quilt measures 80'' x 80'', 60'' x 60'', or 40'' x 40''.START TODAY
Triangle quilts are the best right? You know what makes triangle quilts even better? *Modern* Triangles!
In this block of the month program, we'll work together, step by step, to create this beautiful, shapely (dare I say?) quilt.
I'm sure you can imagine, making a Modern Triangle Quilt, is no small feat. Some of those awesome triangles require a bit of effort!
Just for you, I’ve divyed the Stargazer into a block of the month program, which makes creating a modern triangle quilt manageable and totally doable.
In this program you’ll spend 9 months putting this gorgeous, but challenging, quilt together step by step.
You’ll have the support of instructional videos, tips, and the downloadable PDFs from me, your instructor. *And* you’ll be working on your quilt in good company with lots of other quilt makers from around the world. How cool is that?!
Need something just for you? If you’re like me, you love a little somethin' somethin'. A little sewing R&R.
Something challenging but also enjoyable. For me, that means curling up in my PJs, my sewing machine, and a great Netflix program on my Ipad.
If that sounds pretty nice to you, then treat yourself to the Stargazer Block of the Month program.
In under a year's time, you'll make a beautiful, challenging, Modern Triangles Quilt at a doable and enjoyable pace all with the support of instruction videos from yours truly and in the community of the other quilters in the program.
Get ready for an awesome year!
your modern triangle guide.
My passion is quilting (in color!) and helping quilters create beautiful quilts. I'm known for my colorful quilts, and I've taught thousands of quilters and shown my quilts around the world.
I would love to help you make a Modern Triangle quilt!
When I'm not quilting or teaching, I can be found enjoying a hot cup of coffee (Mocha's are my go to treat!) and a good book, with Bruce Wayne the Weiner Dog curled up on my lap. I also enjoy painting and spending time with my family, husband, and four children.READ MORE ABOUT REBECCA
"Love the 2018 BOM. From start to finish the process was very clear. Videos supported the written materials and the sharing among people from all around the world added additional support and inspiration."
"BOM 2018 is my third class with Becca, one of my favorite quilt teachers. Her projects are interesting and inspiring and her commitment to sharing her techniques, ideas and even her rare mistakes, makes each session a learning time. I’m looking forward to 2019 BOM!"
"I'm new to quilting, so starting a quilting project was daunting for me. But along came the Rainbow Triangle BOM! I signed up and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Plus I will have completed my first quilt! I found the lessons were very well organised. The videos are great as you can actually see the process. Rebecca is an awesome teacher, very well organised and thorough. I have learnt so much and can't wait to start the 2019 BOM."
"The Rainbow Triangle BOM has been a great way to learn new types of piecing to create an often overlooked block shape, triangles, with everything from handouts to video instructions. It has been fun trying to work out each month how the different coloured pieces will go together, and the end result is a gorgeous, unusual and vibrant quilt."
"I had so much fun with the 2018 BOM! The email reveal at the beginning of each month was like getting a little present! Some months were challenging, others were easy-peasy but the final outcome was creative, colorful and beautiful. Rebecca’s attention to detail is incredible...handouts, videos and even a place to post our progress! She gave me so much more than I expected!"
"The 2018 Rainbow Triangle BOM has been pure enjoyment. I took a class previously online with Rebecca and wanted more. And now I have signed up for the 2019 BOM challenge to continue with the enjoyment. Rebecca is a very good teacher, thorough, charismatic, approachable. Would recommend anyone at any level of sewing expertise to join in!"

My favorite modern triangle ninja techniques!
As far as quilting techniques, we traditional piecing, strip sets, using a triangle trimming template, freezer paper piecing, assembling a triangle quilt, and machine binding.
Yes! Absolutely, yes, you can use prints. I personally have this terrible affliction in that I tend to use solids. Ha! But yes, please use prints and use your stash.
You may want to look back on past BOMs (#rainbowtrianglesBOM and #stargazerBOM) to see how others have used prints.
Ah, yes! The All Access Pass to all BOM programs is pretty rad... for triangle lovers.
It's for quilters who love triangles and love my BOM programs and want to play again and again.
There also might probably be a secret *extra* BOM hidden within the membership. Fill in the blank: "12 _____ of Christmas... Just sayin'...
I feel ya! Technology is really cool, but it can be a tad overwhelming.

And of course, if you have any trouble, you'll be able to contact the Customer Success Team for assistance.
Thank you so much!
Oh my goodness no, you do not need to be a perfect piecer.
There's so much I could say about perfection, but I truly believe that finished is better than perfect. Don't let the fear of not being perfect keep you from doing something you love.
Also, personally, I rely heavily on less stress techniques, like avoiding using the scant quarter inch. In this blog post I show you exactly the technique I use to piece the triangles without worrying about my seam allowance. It's kinda lengthy, but I hope you see what I mean.
We do not piece perfectly in the Bryan House!
I say yes way!
A confident beginner could definitely do this quilt.
**Beginners! Check out Lisa's testimonial above. :)**
Being a beginning quilt maker has its challenges, but if you love this quilt and want to learn how to piece with triangles, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how easy it can be.
Why don't you give it a try for a month and see what you think?
There are 4 different colorways to choose from, but if you want to make your own "dream" stargazer, there's color resources inside in the Planning Module.
It's a really cool tool that will let you choose your own color palette.
The quilt finishes at 80'' x 80''. I'll have 60'' x 60'' and 40'' x 40'' options available. Please note the smaller sizes will be made with smaller triangles as opposed to being made with fewer triangles.
