What materials did you use? Old Daisy Kingdom materials They always had such wonderful Christmas fabrics. My sister has bins full and I chose from them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time. Be spot on with your cutting and seams. Have a good sewing machine with the long arm for anything over a baby quilt in size. This project made me get out there and buy a new sewing machine I had been promising myself for YEARS. Thank you Santa! (my partner surprised me with it as he had been watching me struggle with my old old pfaff).

This pattern does not need to be for only a Christmas quilt. I can imagine it would make a beautiful wall hanging.

yes it would as a smaller star. This one is Queen size. The number of rows determine the end size.

Give this one a try! Seriously, it is simple to do step by step. This is my first quilt! I took my time and I am very happy with it. If you need advise on this style I can help!
