Have Fun Selecting Fabrics for This Stunning Quilt!
A brilliant star takes center stage in this beautiful quilt. Modern fabrics give a traditional pattern a fresh new look. The result is a stunning quilt your family will treasures for generations.
Play with color, value, and temperature (warm and cool colors) while selecting fabric for this quilt. You can go bright and bold, soft and sweet, or even for a primitive look. Also consider changing the background from white to another color (black with vivid prints?).
This project is best suited to experienced quilters with solid piecing skills. Take your time, cut and stitch accurately, and before long you’ll have a stunning quilt to be proud of.
The finished quilt by designer Linda Fitch t is 75″ x 75″. Add more, wider borders for a quilt where the star centers nicely on a larger bed.
A kit is also available for this quilt, while supplies last. Purchase the kit here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
