Friday Free Quilt Patterns: Stars-a-Spin | McCall’s Quilting Blog

Patterson Kathy 70px Friday Free Quilt Patterns: Stars a SpinThe McCall’s Quilting editors pride ourselves on writing and publishing clear, complete, correct quilt patterns that help our readers achieve success in every project. But…every now and then…a mistake slips through the editing process and makes it into a published pattern.

That’s what happened with a pattern I wrote, Stars-a-Spin, from the May/June 2014 issue of McCall’s Quilting. Alert quilter PeggyAnn29 left a comment on our website pointing out the error, and we’ve prepared a revised pattern. So let’s take this lemon and make some lemonade! Let’s make this new, correct pattern our Friday FREEbie. Here’s Stars-a-Spin, designed by Nancy Mahoney:

Stars-a-Spin finishes 75 1/2″ square, a large lap size quilt.

See how some of the spinning star blocks are reverses of the others, not just rotated? That’s what we missed in the original pattern. The yardages and cutting were not affected, just the way some of the blocks are assembled. There are still a few quilt kits available if you’d like to make this with the original fabrics from P&B Textiles…and they are deeply discounted too (save $50!).
