Make the Versatile Pattern into Any Block and Quilt Size!

This vintage quilt pattern is so easy to make. The overall design comes from the sashing, while the blocks are all simple squares of fabric.

The pieced sashing forms stars between the blocks. It’s quick, easy and a great pattern for showing off your favorite fabrics.
