Orion Star

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That it actually worked out - hah! I also think it's really neat how it came out kind of looking like a wooden barn quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is some math involved, as the pattern doesn't give the numbers for enlarging the star, but it is really easy and you can do it!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • cotton batting
  • cotton thread

Q&A with Kaye Prince

Keely Wray asked:
Hi Kaye! Is this quilt smaller than the 57"x57" one that the original pattern creates? Or are they the same dimensions?
Kaye Prince answered:
Hi there! No, the quilt is smaller than the full scale Orion. The star portion is enlarged to 36" square and then there is a solid border added, with the quilt finishing at 40" square.
