Daylily Fields Star Quilt


GENERAL DIRECTIONS:

  1. This quilt features a variety of colors and fabrics that can give every block a different appearance with a few block patterns. Make each block from a slightly different set of color-coordinated fabrics and no two will look alike. To get the pictured look, make the star blocks bright and the background blocks lighter.
     
  2. For the stars, use mostly medium and/or bright fabrics, especially on the outside edges of the blocks. Use just one or two light fabrics for the interior or the points of the stars. For the background and inset blocks use mostly light fabrics with just one or two medium and/or bright fabrics for sparkle.
     
  3. There are 16 unit diagrams (A-P). Use these units to construct the blocks. Each block has a block map and an example of fabric placement. If you’d like to match the quilt exactly, follow the fabric placement chart for each star.
     
  4. There are 4 star block patterns. Use these to make a total of 16 star blocks. As shown, there are 5 red, 6 violet, and 5 blue star blocks.
     
  5. There are 3 light background block patterns and 3 light background half-block patterns. Use these to make a total of 9 background blocks and 12 background half-blocks. Make the light corner block pattern 4 times.
     
  6. To construct the quilt, sew the blocks together. Using 6369-01, add a 2" border to the top and bottom and sides to complete the top. (Measure the center before cutting your borders; the top and bottom should be 2-1⁄2" × about 85-1⁄2", and the sides should be 2-1⁄2" × about 89-1⁄2"). Layer, pin, and quilt as desired. Use 6369-02 for the binding.
