Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew a seam, cut fabric

Pattern Description:

This simple, fun, and free quilt pattern was made available as part of the 100 Quilts for Kids Charity Quilt drive. This is definitely a beginner friendly quilt, and is available as a baby or throw size quilt. I have also included instructions for making Star Bright with pre-cuts--charm packs or a layer cake. The quilt can easily be made with scraps or assorted fat quarters, prints or solids, or a mix of both.
