One More Tessellating Stars Quilt

. . . and FREE Pattern!

I picked up my scraps and used the very last of this Kaffe Fassett Roman Glass print in gray. I only could get 5 blocks out of the Artisan Shimmer (the "solids"). You've seen this design many times, but I come back to it again and again because it's so easy.

Tessellating Stars: 38" x 50". 12" blocks

 As you can see, I had to split one block and place one half at the top and one half on the bottom. The four gray marble corner squares finish it off. I just put the binding on Tuesday and it's going to our local donation/charity quilt endeavors. Don't you just love the two border prints? They come from the same Benartex collection, so they work together perfectly. It's a happy quilt that is sure to bring a smile to someone's face.

I made the same design in 2006 using some Bali batiks sent to us at the magazine. Same problem - not enough fabric for 6 full blocks!

Visit the blog post I did last summer and you can see a few more quilts and get the FREE PATTERN for a larger Tessellating Stars quilt. It's perfect for a jelly roll of 2-1/2" strips.


  1. Oh, I do like that solution to a sticky problem! I would never have thought of it. That's why I need your inspiration. LOL I do like those two Benartex fabrics for the borders, too. Thank you!
