Instructions are Provided for Two Block Sizes!

One simple block repeats several times to make a lovely and endearing quilt. This is a great project for scraps or go with a more coordinated color combination.

Sixteen Starflower blocks make up the quilt. They’re easy to make using squares and half-square triangles. Just sew the blocks together in a 4 x 4 grid for the completed quilt top.

The original block tutorial is no longer available but we were able to determine that a 12″ block was used. That yields a quilt of about 48″ square. For a larger quilt, add more blocks or make them larger.

Always Crafty Lady has written a tutorial for a block that finishes at 18.5″. That would yield a 74″ square quilt.

Whichever size you make, her tutorial nicely explains how the block goes together and how best to press to minimize bulk.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
