Star #4


This star presented its own challenges when it came to selecting the two fabrics... since nothing I had really "went" with the colors in the flowers... but I chose the lavender polka dot and like the way it turned out.


The four large stars aren't matchy-matchy but I like the differences.

I've had a couple of questions about the size of the blocks and the number of stars in this quilt pattern so... here is the information for all my curious followers....

  • 4 large star blocks, each 16.5", finishing at 16"
  • 16 small stars, each 8.5", finishing at 8"
  • each small star has a wonky "frame" of fabric strips bringing those 16 stars up to blocks measuring 16.5", finishing at 16"

The quilt is 64" x 80" when completed.
