Really like this quilt. I would like to make a patriotic quilt for a friend who is a veteran and this one would really be SPECIAL! So pretty!

Kimberly Einmo's Magical Jelly Roll Quilts Craftsy class will provide a lesson how to make this star. I added blocks that matched the background, and used background fabric for the sashing around the star blocks. The red stars of 1/2 of the star block, again, surrounded with the background fabric. Good luck and thank you for the compliments!

Hello MimiSC. This quilt is absolutely stunning!!! Can I find this pattern somewhere or is it your original? If so, would you be willing to share the layout and block sizes? I always have to go by a pattern. Just cannot seem to visualize the final outcome unless I have something to go by. You did a beautiful job here. SuziJ from South Carolina.

What I can remember is that I started out using the pattern for the bigger stars that came with Kimberly Einmo's "Magical Blocks out of the Box" class on Craftsy. My secret is to trim the blocks so that you are certan to retain your star points, then, if necessary -- and I did it on this quilt, use the same background fabric that you use on your stars to add sashing around your stars -- this provides two benefits: 1) after sewing the sashing onto the stars, you can trim your sashing easily until all of your blocks are exactly the same size; and 2) you can cut your sashing any width so that your quilt top is your desired size. It has been awhile since I made this, and I want to say that the star blocks are probably at least 18" ... then, with sashing, probably 20 - 22" (or as wide as you wish - this varies based upon the width of your sashing). The half stars are from another star pattern, and I chose to use just half stars to tell the family's story (broken lives, lost soldier).
