Transform Stitches into Stars: Introducing Stitchy Stars by Lori Holt

Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet has launched a new cross stitch pattern that captures the true spirit of the 4th of July! This dazzling row of quilt-inspired stars looks amazing in red, white, pink, and blue! Read more below to learn more about the different fabric combinations you can use to sew up your Stitchy Stars.

This radiant Stitchy Stars sampler was sewn up and finished by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet! Lori stitched her stars on the mottled side of the Oatmeal 25 Count Lugana. She stitched over two threads using two strands of Weeks Dye Works and finished her piece on an 18” Whitewashed Wood Rectangle Plaque by ArtMinds from Michaels.

The Stitchy Stars Cross Stitch Pattern comes with a supply list, diagrams, full-color instructions, and a list of suggested DMC and Weeks Dye Works colors.


Here are the supplies you’ll need to get started on your Stitchy Stars piece:

Stitch up your stars with the Weeks Dye Works Stitchy Stars floss!

A Note on Fabric Size:

After the pattern was designed, we noticed that if you use a precut package of Oatmeal Vintage cloth from your stash, or buy a smaller size cloth, the pattern fits a little bit tighter than expected, leaving less room to frame your piece. To help you cut fabric for your Stitchy Stars, we have provided you with a helpful chart below. Lori Holt’s pre-packaged 10 count Oatmeal Vintage Cloth is not large enough for seven stars across, but you have the option of stitching two rows of three stars from the pattern to make it all fit!

We are sew excited to see how bright your Stitchy Stars can be, and what color and fabric combinations you come up with while using this new pattern! Kimberly will also be sewing up Stitchy Stars during FQS Stitch May-nia if you would like to stitch along with her!

  2. Hi Lori and Kimberly! I just finished stitching this and I love it. My husband made me a board just like the one from Michaels. My question is how did you mount it? Can you tape two sticky boards together and then put one full piece of batting on it?

    Thank you,
