A fun quilt for any child! Tracey Petersen's quilt pattern has a super-sized patchwork star with cute appliquéd motifs of whales and kids fishing.
Full materials list included in instructions
Detailed step-by-step instructions illustrated with diagrams take you through each stage of making this project from cutting and piecing the star block, preparing the appliqué shapes and stitching them in place through to quilting and binding
The star block is pieced from half-square triangles, not diamonds, so it's easy to make - just one block and you're done!
Use two fish print fabrics for the star to add to the fun
All appliqué shapes are provided full-size, ready to trace and reversed for use with fusible web
Instructions are for raw-edge fusible-web appliqué stitched by machine, but they can be readily adapted to suit the appliqué method of your choice
Modify the appliquéd boy to a girl if you wish, just by changing the hair
The appliqué shapes lend themselves to use on a variety of other projects - such as a matching pillowcase, cushion or t-shirt
Suitable for a beginner quiltmaker looking for a project that includes both patchwork and appliqué
