Christmas fabrics make it perfect for a holiday table mat. Simply layer, quilt and bind the block for a topper that is about 15″ square.
Of course, the star will be pretty in other colors as well, so it’s not just for the holidays. Whatever color theme you want to use will be lovely.
The star block is paper pieced, although it could be made the traditional way as well. Paper piecing will give you the best accuracy and is so simple to do with this pattern.
This is something of a beginning pattern, meaning that it does not include a detailed tutorial. However it does include the paper piecing templates, directions, and a coloring page.
The instructions, from Tracey at Traceyjay Quilts, is for a 15″ finished block.
