Premium Star Quilt Blocks

Does this star quilt block look familiar? It may be because the design, called Premium Star, is very similar to another traditional patchwork quilt block, Bear's Paw.

There are a few differences between the two blocks -- Premium Star has more half square triangle units sewn to its four large squares, and the rectangles that separate the four large corner units are wider than the bars used in a Bear's Paw design.

Finished Premium Star Blocks: 15" x 15"

Quilting Fabric & Cutting Instructions

Half square triangle units can be quick pieced. Cutting instructions assume you'll use the method explained on page 2. If you choose another assembly technique, alter cutting to yield half square triangle units that finish at 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" (2" square unfinished).

Like Bear's Paw, this block works nicely with either an orderly fabric arrangement or as a scrap quilt.

  • (12) 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" squares (or cut larger squares and trim back after assembly
