Have you ever wondered if you can quilt a single star instead of a couple of them? Well, you actually can with this video tutorial by Sew Yeah on YouTube! Instead of creating quilts with lots of stars, pattern, or shapes, try this minimalistic approach which showcases a huge lone star that will surely pop and stand out. If you want to learn how then proceed to read the instructions down below and watch the video for more details and steps.
First off, cut the fabrics as needed in the pattern, then lay the background triangle and fat quarter triangle together with their right sides facing, and sew them along the long edge. Press it open to create 1 half-square triangle, then lay two fat quarter triangles together with their right sides facing, and sew along the long edge to create a half-square triangle. After sewing all of the half-square triangles that you’ll be needing, lay them out as shown in the pattern and video, then lay the solid 12½ squares at the corner to make the star more visible.
Sew the four squares together two at a time to complete the four patches, then press the seams to one side, and repeat with the rest of the quadrant. Now, sew the four quadrants together to complete the star, then press the seams nicely, and sew the border. Give the seams a good press, then sew the binding strips, and quilt however you want. You can also add backing and batting to your quilt.
