A New Pattern
Remember this quilt? Since completing it, I’ve had several requests for my measurements and fabric requirements so I decided to just create a pattern for it.
The quilt is a fun one to make. If you've never attempted a star quilt I have to tell you that the sawtooth stars are not nearly as difficult as one would think. If you watch your 1/4" seams then your points will turn out just fine!
The quilt finishes at 56” x 72”
The fabric requirements for this quilt are:
1/6 yard each of 8 prints
1/4 yard each of 2 prints
white/background: 3-1/2 yards
binding: 1/2 yard
backing 3-1/3 yard
The pattern can be purchased as a pdf from here. If you’re interested in a printed copy send me an email: abrightcorner (at) gmail (dot) com or you can convo me through my etsy shop as well.
If you're crazy about star quilts and want to try some fun variations, check out this star quilt-a-long that Amanda Jean hosted waaaayyy back in 2008. She walks you through the cutting and piecing of each unique star block.
