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.

Make it up in coordinated fabrics, perhaps from a layer cake, or mix and match for a scrappy look. Whatever palette you choose is sure to be beautiful in this quilt.

This is a wonderfully versatile pattern and perfect for when you need to finish a quilt quickly. It’s also a great first quilt for beginning quilters.

The tutorial, from Quilter’s Cache, gives instructions for any block and quilt size. Therefore, exact yardage is not specified nor are exact cutting instructions.

Don’t worry, there’s an easy formula that will allow you to make your blocks and stars whatever size you like. The example is for a block-plus-sashing that finishes at 12″.

There are also several examples to spur your creativity. Be sure to visit page 3 of the 3-page tutorial to see them all.

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.
