Highland Stars Quilt – Fons & Porter

About this Quilt

Highland Stars throw quilt pattern is the perfect quilt to challenge newer quilters and a wonderful project for seasoned quilters. This quilt brings warmth and interest to any room it’s used in and it’s a real joy to make. Try this new take on a star quilt and you’ll see what we mean! You may have noticed that these are no ordinary star blocks. The designer added narrow, light-colored strips to the points to create contrast and outline the stars. These strips divide each block, and when the blocks are turned just so, you get a unique star pattern. The double border frames it all in and brings it all together in one lovely, cohesive look. What a beauty!
