Beginners may think that star quilt patterns are difficult to make. Not so. Most star blocks are easy. Take them apart to see, or make them big!
A lot of star quilt blocks are made up of simple shapes like squares, rectangles and triangles. These are put together in easy to make quilt block units called flying geese, hourglass blocks, half square triangles, quarter square triangles and the like.
You learn how to quilt by learning to quilt the parts that make up blocks.
If your quilting experience hasn't been fun, help is here. We'll quilt the stars, and the units that they're made of, together!
This beauty is made up of made up of simple squares and triangles. That's it! This star is based on a nine patch grid and has eight uneven points - four short and four long. To get consistent points use tri-recs triangle tools to make the galaxy star quilt block.
Talk about being popular and prolific...the Ohio star is a traditional quilt block with so many variations, 100s maybe. It's a 9-patch grid star made of hourglass units and simple squares. A red and white fabric combination make it a true classic. Try the Ohio star quilt block pattern.
Lots of star quilt patterns use the sawtooth star in their designs. Why? Probably because it uses easy to make flying geese units. And, the center square leaves room for lots of design possibilities. Add another star or quilt a cool motif. Get instructions to make it a 12-inch sawtooth star quilt block.

Wondering what a log cabin quilt block has to do with star quilts? Log cabin blocks are so darn versatile that they can be arranged to create a star pattern. Who knew, right?! While I work up this magical rendition try a more traditional log cabin block.
You may become addicted to quilting star blocks! (Remember, I did warn you!) :-)
