Finlay's Stars

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills, Rotary cutting skills, Straight piecing

Pattern Description:

I needed a baby quilt for a friend's new baby, and I was really inspired by a picture of a Moroccan tile. And that's how Finlay's Stars was born!

I used a red/white/blue colour scheme, which just screams 4th of July to me!

My favourite bit about this pattern is the secondary pattern that forms around the white background shapes - almost like a windmill!

Finlay's Stars uses very simple construction - it is all constructed with squares and Half-Square triangles. It is a perfect project for someone with a few quilt tops under their belt. Rotary cutting skills are helpful, as is knowledge of strip piecing.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Crib Quilt (36" x 44")
  • Lap Quilt (68" x 68")
  • Twin/Single Quilt (60" x 84")
  • Full/Double Quilt (76" x 84")
  • Queen Quilt (92" x 100")
  • King Quilt (100" x 100")


  • Finlay's Stars uses 4 colours - one scrappy primary star, a secondary star, red accent squares and a white background.
  • Yardage varies depending on the size of the quilt you make.
  • The stars are very fat-quarter friendly!

You Will Also Need:

  • Backing and batting to finish.
