2404: Star Quilts, Star Patterns, Stars for Days! (Double Stars)

Episode 2404 Description and Preview

Double Stars combines two sizes of the same quilt block to create a secondary design. The “double effect” is taken a step further by putting a star within a star and using a solid with a print for this quilt. Star patterns like Double Stars make quilting exciting! Jodie Davis joins Mary Fons to show you the basics of creating the 8-pointed star block.

Featured Quilt: Double Stars

Double Stars QuiltA color combination that seems to work, no matter the era, is blue and green. In Double Stars, shades of blue and green are combined and set against a crisp, white background, making these colors pop! Do you see the star-in-a-star blocks? Small 8-pointed stars are nestled in a larger 8-pointed star. Spectacular!

Double Stars was designed, made and quilted by Nancy Mahoney. The quilt is featured in the Love of Quilting July/August 2014 issue.
