It Will Be Beautiful in Prints for Any Season!

Sparkling stars in the center of Xs give this beautiful quilt an intriguing overall design. Depending on value and color placements you can emphasize the large lattice or let it disappear.

Start with fat quarters or a half-yard bundle in colors you love. Of course, any color theme will be striking in this quilt. This is a fun project because you can give the quilt many different looks and personalities.

X Marks the Star Quilt Pattern

Squint to see the large lattice in the bottom half of this version.

Large blocks separated by sashing with cornerstones make this a relatively quick project suitable for quilters of most skill levels. If you can sew accurate Flying Geese units and Economy blocks (diamond in a square) you’ll enjoy making this quilt.

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!
