I've downloaded every ebook and cannot find the Sweet Scandivanian Star Block. When I try to get the pattern, it doesn't give me the pattern measurements. Could you please send them to me. Thank you

I have looked and looked for this pattern whenever this block is shown, but I can't find it. This is very frustrating.

What's wrong with the instructions given at the link for "Click here for the quilt project"? They look very easy to follow.

Unfortunately when you open that link it shows very nice pictures but nothing on size of the pieces or finished size of the block

It doesn't give the size for the pieces. It only tells you how to put it together.

I too love this block and also have looked for the pattern and cant find it

It is only a tutorial. you have to buy the book which is $16 on etsy.

love how this pattern spins the classic bear paw pattern to create this beautiful floral/star design! what a good idea

Love the look. Would look fab in blue/white, especially if while had a dash of silver metallic. Too bad no cutting instructions. Need pattern for 12" finished blocks for party swap.

for those looking for the pattern, it's included in this e-book download on the designer's etsy shop https//www.etsy.com/listing/474707380/holly-jolly- == quilt-book-download?ref=listing-shop-header-0

Thanks, theoriginaldallas! The reason we've only linked to the tutorial above is because it is free, while the pattern is priced. Thank you for including this link for those who wish to purchase the pattern!

Where can I find the actual pattern? Tutorial is good but there is no sizes for cutting out and I have looked for any link to it but could not find it. A tutorial is not much use if you don't have the sizing for the pieces to begin with.

Hi robymac, The reason we've only linked to the tutorial above is because it is free, while the pattern is priced. A fellow commentor has included a link to the priced pattern if you would like to purchase it. Thanks!

Beautiful, but I need a pattern. There must be one - Right? Can someone help with this?

Hi jmmcdermott, this is a tutorial for how to make the quilt block and does not include a pattern. The blogger does break down each step of making the block. Thanks!

Very helpful, thank you!

So how do you find the pattern?

Hi peggy2025, this is a tutorial for how to make the quilt block and does not include a pattern. The blogger does break down each step of making the block. Hope this helps!

Love how classic this is. So pretty for Christmas!

I am really into this traditional look. Plus, the colors are definitely perfect for a Christmas quilt.
