When it comes to sewing a quilt, you don’t get any more classic than star quilt patterns. These are a staple design, perfect both for beginning and advanced quilters. Star quilt patterns are enormously variable and fun to sew; whether you stick to a traditional design or go for a more modern look, there is certainly a pattern out there for you. Star quilts are prefect for any season, shape, size, and type of quilt. Probably my favorite thing about the star block design is the range of emotions it can evoke–from cheery and carefree to the kind of quiet comfort you get from looking at the night sky. Humans have always had the impulse to reach up and touch the stars, and star quilts allow us to get just that much closer.
Star blocks like the Tiny Wonky Star are easy to piece and quick to make! Perfect for a quick throw quilt or a gift you started late on.
