Firefly Quilting

Carpenters Star Quilt - Part 2

This is a really fun pattern that can be made with a layer cake or yardage. If you use a layer cake the top will have a lot of variety (photo bottom right). If you prefer a 3D effect you can use yardage with fewer fabrics. Open to all levels. The second class will meet on May 21st

About the event

We will begin the class by planning our blocks on paper, then we will start piecing. I strongly recommend that you have a fair amount of contrast between the background fabric and the fabric that will produce the star pieces. In the second class we will lay our blocks out and piece the rows

The finished piece is 83" x 83" but you may widen your border or add additional borders to make it larger. The quilt in the upper left photo has 4 borders and is a full king size so there are plenty of options if you would like to make yours a full queen or king.

**If you email me I will provide the additional fabric you will need if you wish to make yours larger.

If you are using a layer cake (lower right photo) you will need:

1 layer cake

2 1/4 yards background fabric

1 1/2 yards border fabric

3/4 yard binding

Backing can be 42" fabric - 7 3/4 yards or wide back - 2 3/4 yards

If you are using yardage (upper left photo) you will need:

2/3 yard - star fabric #1

2/3 yard - star fabric #2

2/3 yard - star fabric #3

2/3 yard star fabic #4

1 yard - fabric between the stars OR this can be the background fabric, in which case you will add this to the yardage needed for the background.

1 1/2 yards background fabric

1 1/2 yards border fabric

3/4 yards binding

Backing will be the same as above unless you are making yours larger.

If you are using yardage, please precut your fabric. I will provide the directions if you email me at
