Star Block Size: 28-3/4" x 28-3/4"
Quilt Size: 58" x 58"

Grab that bin of scraps and strings and piece them onto newsprint diamonds. No need to measure - just stitch and press. Trim around the edges and add setting triangles for a NO y-seam Lone Star! Arrange them in what I call a “When Four Blocks Become Five” arrangement.

In this 8 page pdf there are lots of color photos to guide you in the process. You can add borders or just stop here (as I have). Supplies listed inside. This assumes you have access to large (6-1/2” x 16” or longer) pieces of newsprint. Photos of how to cut these are in the pattern. Enjoy!

I made a baby quilt from this pattern using the four square blocks. While not my style, the couple is very happy with it and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I will respond again when I make the quilt. Directions look very well detailed. I have taken in person classes with Debby Kratovil. Debbie is an excellent teacher. Her teaching method is why I chose to purchase this pattern. My cousin chose the Gees Bend quilt for her gift from me.

Love this pattern using Kaffe motifs from the Sunburst fabric. Simple and easy to get, just purchase,... download and print and you are all set. Instructions look simple and straight forward. Communication from seller is excellent as well. Highly recommend!!!

Such a cute pattern. I love the addition of the flying geese to the quilt top. Adds more color and movement. Love it!!
