Easy Star & Loop Meander – Quilting Stitch Tutorial from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our remake of Twinkle, I chose a super simple star and loop meander.

This design is very beginner friendly. You just need to be able to quilt a loop and a five-pointed star, both of which you probably have been doodling since grade school.

I love this design because it is fast, simple and looks great on kids quilts and patriotic quilts.

I quilted this on my longarm, but it is just as easy on your home sewing machine. Enjoy and tag us on the socials if you give it a go.
