You’ll Love How Quickly it Goes Together!

Simple stars made from fat quarters pop against a dark background in this charming quilt. It’s a simple quilt to make, even for beginners, and it’s great in any color theme.

Plus, it’s easy to make the quilt larger or smaller. Simply add or delete blocks.

Barn Style Quilt Pattern

The designer, Vanessa from Lella Boutique, used Moda Cross Weave fabric for the background to give the quilt texture. She cautions that:

“If you decide to use Moda Crossweave in your quilting, be aware that it shrinks more than regular cotton prints. Because of this, I recommend buying extra yardage to prewash/dry before cutting.”

You’ll find a nice selection of Moda Cross Weave fabric here.

Of course, regular quilting cotton is great too. Play with background colors to create your own unique version.

Barn Style Quilt Pattern

Quilt from Pinterest.

Taunja Kelvington from Carried Away Quilting gave her version an entirely different look. She used a closely coordinated fabric combination and it appears as though she added sashing to separate the star blocks. Learn more about her quilt here.

Barn Style Quilt Pattern

The finished quilt designed by Vanessa is 68″ x 68″.

You’ll find instructions for a 48″ square baby quilt and 80″ square quilt here.

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