TUTORIAL: Star Kissed Big Block Baby Quilt from Wedding Dress Blue

When a single block is 28″, it is easy to turn it into a baby quilt, wall hanging or table topper.

BIG BLOCK BABY
Finished size: 36-1/2″ x  36-1/2″

MATERIALS

ONE Size Large (based on 2-1/2″ squares) Star Kissed Block.  It will measure 28-1/2″. You can find all directions HERE.

64 2-1/2″ scrappy squares
1/4 yard background fabric (NOTE:  I matched the background to the star block itself, but it is OK to use a scrappy background as long as it is very similar value.  Otherwise, the star won’t shine as bright)

Vera’s Star 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

A one block design, with bits and pieces ignored or recoloured to create different designs.

I like the gentle curves in the centre of the block.

Star for Selina OP 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

Just one block, recoloured to fill spaces with much more interest than just making the same version over and over.

The centre block in the second design is the block as it appears in full colours.

Also has the quilting design ready to stitch … just follow the seam lines which are not there!

One block design used, in parts, for all the pieced blocks and the quilting motif.

Just a few changes … and I must have used a totally different virtual thread for the quilting motif!

Vivienne's Star Quilt 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting, and I like the colours. All the blocks are variations of just one block, and the quilting lines are also based on that one block.

More blocks, more interesting.

Vera's Star 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

I wonder how many ways the Vera’s Star block can be coloured?

And if Vera’s Star can be coloured so many different ways, how many ways can your favourite block can be coloured to create a centre feature, straight lines, diagonal lines, corners, small feature blocks?

The easy part is finding the quilting design … just follow the seam lines, though I would quilt a line just outside the seam lines so that the quilting stitches can be seen, not hidden in the ditch, and the coloured pieces stand up above the background fabric.

One block quilts do not ...

Vera's Star 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

One block, one quilting design exactly following the lines of the block, but contrast fabric is not used in some of the pieces so those pieces disappear.

In a real quilt the cutting and piecing can be reduced by not cutting on all the seamlines.

Are you ready for the first challenge of the year?

I am working on it so it will be published over the weekend.
