Ingenious Construction Saves Time and Fabric!
Vintage-style fabrics are so lovely in this charming quilt. Colorful small-scale prints accented with yellow give the quilt a very inviting personality. A wide variety of 1/8th yard cuts provide the warm scrappy look.
Change the quilt’s personality by changing the accent color. Or consider other print styles. Batiks would be wonderful, as would larger modern prints.
This is a super easy quilt to make, and with little waste. While creating the main blocks you’ll also be making half-square triangles for the sawtooth border. Nice!
The finished quilt, designed by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson from Me & My Sister Designs, is 68 1/2″ x 68 1/2″.
You’ll find the pattern for the “Star Search” quilt in Big Block Quilts.

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!
