It’s Great in Quilting Cottons Too!
Cuddle up during chilly weather with this striking quilt. The example was made from flannel making it extra cozy but regular quilt fabrics will be great too.
Two simple blocks combine to create an eye-catching star block that forms secondary stars when several are sewn together. While the quilt looks complex, it’s easy enough for a confident beginner.
Start with an assortment of 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips and a background fabric. This is a fun quilt to make and you’ll love watching the clever design come together.
One large star made from four blocks will make a charming table or wall quilt. The following example was made from batiks and would finish at about 24 1/2″ square.
The completed quilt, designed by Scott Flanagan, is 72″ x 96″.
You’ll find the “Falling Stars” quilt pattern in Quilters World Autumn 2022.
