Scrappy Stars

Scrappy Stars Quilt has been in the making for quite sometime. I've had a vision in mind of what I wanted it to look like, and with lots of doubt and questioning of my vision, it took a lot longer than it should have!

I do love how it came out. The fabrics in each star and in each background hold a lot of memories for me, and for that I will always cherish this quilt.

Scrappy Stars is perfect for tackling your scrap bins and using up those precious pieces of your favorite fabrics, but it also works great with fat quarters, charm packs, layer cakes or yardage!


To make this quilt, you will need:

  • 128 5" x 5" squares (or 2 1/4 yards total) in assorted colors for star blocks
  • 128 5" x 5" squares (or 2 1/4 yards total) in neutral colors for background
  • 1/2 yard for binding.
  • 4 yards regular width fabric for the back.
  • Batting at least 72" x 72"
  • Thread

If you'd like, sort your half square triangles into color groups, like I did. I made six color groups - yellow, green, teal, blue, purple, and red.

I played around with the colors from block to block. Have fun with it! Try a few different color layouts, see what you like best. I made one all yellow star block, and positioned it near the center. I call it my North Star.

The possibilities are endless with this pattern! Pattern is now available here.
