Joyous Celebration Star Quilt Pattern

Finished Star and Snowball Quilt Blocks: 4" square

Finished Quilt Size: 29-1/2" square

I chose a Christmas theme for this small star quilt, but it's easy to vary the fabrics to make it suit your own needs. The light fabric that is used as a background for the star blocks blends with the pictorial fabric placed inside the snowball blocks, giving the snowballs an on-point appearance even though they are sewn side by sewn in an easy straight setting.
