2007 Anniversary Sampler Quilt, Scrappy Framed Star Block

Scrappy Framed Stars

This star quilt block is part of the 2007 Anniversary Sampler Quilt, but please feel free to use it in another quilt.

Finished Block Size: 12" x 12"

Scrappy framed star has a pinwheel (made from four half-square triangle units) at its center. The pinwheel is surrounded by darker star tips using flying geese units. A scrappy patchwork frame is sewn around the block's outer perimeter.

Star Quilt Block Cutting Chart

The colors in the illustration help me explain which units go where; choose fabrics and colors that work with your quilt's theme.

From neutral background fabric, cut:

  • four 3" x 3" squares
  • four 3" x 5-1/2" rectangles
  • two 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" squares*

*Use squares slightly larger than 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" if you like to make oversize half-square triangle units and trim them back to the exact size after assembly.

From medium green fabric, cut:

  • two 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" squares*

*Use squares slightly larger than 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" if you like to make oversize half-square triangle units and trim them back to the exact size after assembly.

From dark purple fabric, cut:

  • eight 3" x 3" squares
  • four 1-1/2" x 1-3/4" bars

From assorted light fabrics, cut:

  • forty 1-1/2" x 1-3/4" bars
