I’m a sucker for a good star quilt. I’ve even collected a bunch of my favourites in a Pinterest board.
So I made my own star-in-a-star design. Twice the twinkle! 😉
I separated the centre 4 half-square triangles and the triangle-in-a-square blocks to create a kind of halo in the middle of the block. The half-square triangles in the corners end up framing the halo nicely. I couldn’t decide if I liked the more saturated colours in the middle or on the outside, so I just alternated them instead.
The design can look just as cute in two colours…
This design is so simple that I wouldn’t be surprised if there were other similar ones out there. To make this design into a quilt, you’d just need just some half-square triangles, squares, rectangles, and triangle-in-a-square blocks. Super simple!
