Lucky Star Quilt Along with Keaton Quilts
Intermediate | 1 hour 31 min
Be dazzled while you stitch along with Justin of Keaton Quilts and make a 12 block quilt top, featuring a rainbow palette of star shapes. Sewist, author, and educator Justin Stafford walks you through the Lucky Star quilt, using rulers and a rotary cutter to make an array of traditional blocks. While the quilt top is designed for intermediate quilters, once beginners have mastered the half square triangle they’ll find the video instructions thorough enough to rapidly advance their skills. Use a muted palette for a traditional throw or replicate Justin’s scheme for a vibrant stunner.

    Would like mention of grainline direction in the star components so could better use the larger trimmings in the small sections of later blocks.
