This week’s Friday FREEbie, Twinkling Star, was selected by associate editor Tricia Patterson for our I Love This Quilt page in the Jan/Feb ’17 issue of McCall’s Quilting. The design from Jinny Beyer is a reproduction of one made by Alice Melum Moss, circa 1930.
Using lots of different fabric prints on this vintage quilt design will give you an interesting 1930s-looking quilt. You can even mix prints and plaids, or brights and pastels.
The finished size of the quilt is 66″ x 100″.
Tricia is planning on changing the design of the border and binding, and using a couple techniques to speed up the piecing, different from those probably used in the original pattern. You can follow along on her ongoing blog series about it right here on the McCall’s Quilting blog. Part one is available here, and part two is available here.
Download the Twinkling Star quilt pattern here and quilt along. It’s a Friday FREEbie!
