Go Bolder for a More Modern Interpretation!
Intricate stars shimmer across the surface of this pretty quilt. While it looks complex, half-square triangles in varying sizes make up the wonderful design.
The quilt is lovely made up in softly colored fabrics with a vintage vibe. However, stronger colors will be just as beautiful.
Choose 15-20 coordinated fat quarters for interest and variety. Tie them all together with a beautiful border fabric.
The finished quilt, designed by Primrose Cottage Quilts, is 64″ x 64″.
One of the blocks, which measure 17″ square, will make a lovely little quilt for your wall or table. The following examples, made by Lindsey Weight as part of a sew-along, shows how beautiful the block is in Christmas colors. See more examples of the block in holiday colors by scrolling down the sew-along posts found here.
The quilt itself is gorgeous in a variety of Christmas fabrics. The following photos are also from Primrose Cottage Quilts.

Have fun playing with colors and fabric to make your own special version.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
