Star Shadows Quilt

Star Shadows by Krystina Hopkins

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 48" x 60"

Rating : Confident Beginner

Designed By : Krystina Hopkins

Sometimes, patterns and designs are more subtle than they first appear.

We love this soft and delicate version of a star quilt, complete with four sawtooth stars arranged in a grid. But subtle changes and differences in colors make this design special.

Inspired by crisp autumn nights, Krystina Hopkins brings us back to the evenings when the humidity clears and the stars peek out of the shadows. This simple quilt honors these stars with asymmetrical color blocking, giving the quilt an instantly modern appeal. Notice that the star units on the left and right are mirror images – 4 of each. Orienting the block properly is crucial to the design. Krystina suggests that using a design wall to stay organized is key!
