Free quilt pattern: Sweet Stars
Here is a quilting pattern that is sure to make any space shine! The Sweet Stars pattern is a clever twist on a simple star design. You don’t have to worry about making perfectly crisp star points because the triangles begin as small squares stitched to a larger one and ultimately become two flying-geese units. To add an extra pop to this quilt you can use a variety of different fabric prints with an array of colors.
Hot tip: this pattern is also fabulous for quilters who love scrappy and fat quarter-friendly quilts.
