Blazing Stars Wall Quilt

Combine four Blazing Star blocks for a striking wall hanging. By using prints with metallic stripes, the star points seem to radiate light. Fabrics are from the Maestro collection by Kathy Hall and the Big Beautiful Bugs collection by Lonni Rossi, both from Andover Fabrics.

Assemble Diamond Points


1. Sew together a dark print 1-3/4x42" strip and a light print 1-3/4x42" strip, offsetting strips by 1-1/4", to make Strip Set A (Diagram 1). Press seam toward darker print.

2. With a ruler and rotary cutter, trim right-hand edge of strip set at a 45˚ angle (Diagram 2). To easily trim at this angle, align the 45˚ line of an acrylic ruler with top edge of strip set (see blue line in Diagram 2).

3. Rotate strip set 180˚. Cutting parallel to trimmed left-hand edge, cut strip set into eight 1-3/4"-wide A segments (Diagram 3). Check every two or three segments to ensure you’re still cutting at a perfect 45˚ angle. Repeat Step 2 to correct the angle, if needed.

4. Using a light print 1-3/4x42" strip and a medium print 1-3/4x42" strip, repeat Step 1 to make Strip Set B (Diagram 4).

5. Repeats steps 2 and 3 using Strip Set B to make eight 1-3/4"-wide B segments (Diagram 5).

6. Sew together an A and B segment to make a diamond point (Diagram 6). Press seam in one direction. Mark a dot 1/4" in from each corner of the diamond point.

7. Repeat Step 6 to make and mark eight diamond points total.

8. Repeat steps 1–7 to make four sets total of eight matching diamond points.
