One Block Takes On Many Different Looks!

Deep, rich colors are simply stunning in this inviting quilt. It’s so easy to imagine curling up with it during cold weather.

Part of the quilt’s charm is that each block is different. Actually, every block is the same but they’re all colored differently. Variations in color and value placement within the blocks contribute to making this such an appealing quilt.

Christmas Star Quilt Block Pattern

The blocks are set off with dark sashing and red cornerstones. The combination does a beautiful job of pulling the blocks together into a unified whole.

This is a wonderful project for scraps or choose a wide variety of pre-cuts. Flannel would be especially cozy but go with the fabrics and colors you prefer.

We discovered this quilt on Pinterest but were unable to learn anything about it other than what block was used. It was pinned by Mickey Thompson who says the block is Christmas Star from Quilter’s Cache.

Winter Quilt

We’ve colored the block on the right, above, in a similar way to the blocks in the quilt. That makes it easier to see how the block was used in the quilt.

The blocks finish at 12″ square. It looks like the sashing is 2″ wide. Use as many blocks as you need to achieve the desired size.
