Scrappy Stars Quilt





Is there an official name for this pattern?  It's not that common, but I do see it now and then.  It is very simple, but effective. 

You use a combination of 5" squares, 2.5" squares, and 2.5"x5" rectangles.  On the rectangles, you sew little corners on, just like you would for a wonky star block.  If I knew what it is called, I'd link to a tutorial or pattern, but I'm not sure where to find one...

Yay!  I just found the one I was thinking of!  I adore the version in this pattern with the red stars, and think it would be an amazing quilt to make.  Find it here.

This pattern does two things differently than mine.  I sewed the star corners on 'wonky'.  This means that I didn't cut and measure them all the same size.  Also, I put a row of empty squares around the edge without stars in them.  I just like the way it gives the design a chance to breathe.

  5. I love the Low Volume look of your quilt with the "pop" of wonky stars color in the center. I also like to use a stripe for the binding as it brings up the FUN factor to a new level.
    Thanks for sharing.
    p.s. I think I have the h, My Stars pattern in my files and I like your version also.
