This baby quilt design modifies the classic lone star quilt pattern by showing you how to piece different fabrics together to make each point a different color. Babies are unpredictable, so you'll need a simple baby quilt that you know looks good, but doesn't require a lot of hours. In this case, this easy star quilt pattern will be perfect.

Quilting for Beginners Tips and Tricks

Have you taken up quilting lately but you're not sure where to start? Check out these quilting for beginners tips and tricks to get you started on your first quilt patterns.

The bigger the pieces, the easier it will be to make! You'll be able to quilt larger pieces together more quickly than a bunch of smaller pieces. There will be fewer seams to sew, which will make the process more accurate and you'll have less errors. 

Squares and rectangles are much easier to sew together when it comes to quilting for beginners. Triangles will complicate your quilt a lot more when it comes to the edges. Plus, sizing these pieces will be a breeze compared to other shapes.

Quilt patterns made with pre-cuts are so much easier for beginners to make! Your pieces will be ready for you to piece together and you won't have to do any cutting or other preparation. Most of the work is done for you with pre-cuts, which makes it ideal for quilting for beginners. 

Don't be afraid to take a class if you're serious about quilting! Having someone guide you through more difficult techniques and walking you through a pattern will help you more when you're on your own. 

To recap, look for: larger pieces, squares and rectangles, pre-cut patterns, and quilting classes.

i loved the pattern so I made 3 quilts

It looks easy and so pretty. I have a question , why to you put basking on the star when you are putting the big backing on the back? thanks Lorita

but it does look easy, I have a question , why do you back the square when you are putting a backing on it?

This turned out so awesome and was even easier than I expected!! Seriously, 4 Fat Quarters and some background fabric made a totally cute baby quilt and in an evening I had the top done! This could be my new favorite go-to pattern for an almost instant baby gift! Plus, I used the scraps from the FQs to make a baby bib to match the blanket!!
