Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Foundation Paper Piecing

Pattern Description:

Included in the template is the pattern to make this exploding star that I designed. Basic knowledge of paper piecing is required as instructions for paper piecing is not included with this template. However, I taught myself how to paper piece with the help of YouTube and some great blogs from doing a simple Google search. It really is a simple and gratifying process that enables you to be extremely precise in your piecing!

This pattern can be used for a simple pillow, wall hanging, or you can make multiple and create a wonderful quilt. The color choices are endless and you have the freedom to really mix it up and experiment with colors and textures!

The pattern is on a simple 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and you should have no printing issues, nor should you have to fiddle with printer settings. There is a 1 inch measure line on the pattern just to ensure that you print the pattern out in the correct proportions. Make sure to print 4 sheets and enjoy!!!!
