This star quilt block is known as the Eight Point Star or Square and Points. We can clearly see why! Quilters love star blocks! But, they can be tricky for beginners. Getting crisp points is not always easy.
However, the way that this star block is constructed solves most of that. It’s made with squares, not diamonds – a favorite among some experienced quilters. Yeah, you see some triangles in the block shown above. But, they are all made from squares. Yes, believe it! 🙂
To make the flying geese that you see we will use the No Waste Flying Geese method, which makes four flying geese at a time!
When I pulled fabric from my stash, it had a definite 70’s feel, and I was transported back to the summer I had a sundress in these colors. How vividly I remember the colors and patterns of clothes my mother made for me growing up! I’m sure my early memories influence a lot of color choices without me realizing it. Have you found this too?
Your light and dark may be different from someone else’s starting point of light and dark. For a scrap quilt, the dark and light fabrics don’t all have to match. It’s the overall contrast in the finished blocks that’s important, and contrast can vary when a scrap quilt is assembled. This pattern is by fatquartershop.com
Remember that warm colors, such as yellow, orange, and red, can pop out in the design as much as a dark fabric, including neutrals, such as black, or cool colors, such as dark blue. Even if you make a quilt with lots of dark fabrics, consider using the same light fabric throughout to add continuity to the design. That’s part of the method for choosing fabrics for quilts.[download_after_email id=”1764″ css=”off”]
