Single Star Wreath


I thought this little quilt would be really easy - it uses templates, which I normally avoid, but the pieces are so big and chunky I thought even I can do it justice. But I struggled a little with this one - very few of my seams and points match, although it doesn't look too bad from a distance. I had planned to make four of these 42 1/2" blocks and put together with sashings for a queen sized quilt, but don't think I can face making another three of them. I think I will just add a big border and make it into a small lap quilt.

This pattern is by Brenda Smith and was in Australian Patchwork & Quilting Vol 15 No 9.

Hi Vanessa,

It looks very effective but templates are not my sort of thing either - except for English paper piecing. Love the colours you used.

Hugs Alex

I have a ruler set that does this same block as the template........I wouldn't bother making it with the templates........
