About this Quilt


Fusible appliqué stars twinkle in the center of large 16” pieced blocks in this dynamic throw. If you’re new to appliqué, just follow our step-by-step Sew Easy lesson included with the pattern. Plus, we’ve simplified assembly of all those small squares framing the stars by cutting them from strip sets.

This quilt meets the requirements of the Quilts of Valor® Foundation. We think it deserves a big gold star!
