Anthem Quilt Pattern

Every year I promise myself a red, white and blue quilt for the summer.  I’ve never made it happen – until now.  I’d like to introduce Anthem, a vintage-inspired star quilt that is a quick and fun project.

This quilt is inspired by a vintage block I came across a while ago.  I was drawn to the way the stripes rotate around the star.  Given my love of the lone star block, I liked this variation and decided to try it out.

These blocks come together very quickly (no Y seams) and provide big impact.  The blocks finish at 22″ and you only need nine to make a quilt that measures 66″ square.

The pattern is now for sale in my Craftsy store.  I’m offering it at an introductory price of just $4.99 through July 8th.  Download the pattern now and have a finished quilt top before the 4th!

Happy Sewing!

    So on your star quilts, you join 4 points and then put the squares and triangles in then join the 4 points to make a 8 point star? I don’t do mine by all the little cuttings, I individually cut my diamonds and then join them, 4 at a time and then join all 8 and then put squares and triangles.
    But what I’m getting at is sometimes after they’re joined they don’t want to lay flat.

    Lacquita,
    One of the biggest challenges to making these stars, no matter how you do it, is handling the bias so your pieces don’t stretch or warp, and so your block will lay flat. Have you tried using a starch or starch alternative to help with it?
