Stars & 4 Patch
t’s not a secret that Donna Jordan from Jordan Fabrics has some of the best quilting tutorials on the internet. I adore her quilts, and this Stars & 4 Patches is no different.
If you want to make this gorgeous quilt yourself, you’ll need a background fabric along with a few different solid/patterned fabrics to build the pattern.
Now let’s get started!
Stitching Easy As 1, 2, 3
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, you’ll sew up your blocks. There are 3 blocks that make up this star as a whole. A 4 patch, 4 triangles, and a solid block in the center.
The 4 patch is simply 4 tiny squares stitched together. The 4 triangles are squares cut through the diagonal and then mismatched and sewn together, so the triangles point inward and form a square.
You’ll make 4 of each of these. As for the center block, it takes next to no effort: it’s just a square! Now comes the arrangement.
Place your solid block in the middle. On each side, place one of your 4 triangle blocks, having the background fabric face the square.
One each diagonal corner, place a 4 patch. Once you sew all of these up, you’re all done!
The best part of this pattern, other than how easy it is to make, is that the pattern is 100% free! You can find the full written pattern by clicking here.
