✂️ Got scraps?? ✂️ Of course! We all have overflowing scrap bins don’t we? My last scrappy pattern was for using bitty bits. This time I’m swinging the other direction, and using larger scrap pieces. Scraps come in all shapes and sizes after all. Today, the >> FOLK STAR Quilt Pattern << is ready to play…

Advanced Beginner Pattern
10 page PDF Pattern (includes Coloring Diagram)
I tried to design this quilt pattern for using a little bit of everything. We are able to use leftover 10” Layer Cake squares in the colorful triangles at each corner of the quilt. The center of the quilt features 4 simple sampler blocks that all build off of each other. They only require (1) fat quarter and (1) 1/2 yard of purple fabrics.
I also wanted to include 2 types of neutrals in this quilt. So we have a white background to feature the sampler block work, and to make the large HSTs with aqua for the big star. But you’ll notice the aqua star points also feature a second neutral - Notorious Cloud Metallic from Cotton and Steel. It adds some visual interest without overwhelming or distracting from the main design elements of the quilt. I’m smitten! I also used the taupe metallic print as the binding. ;)
I hope you enjoy Folk Star!
