Scrappy Lone Star Block

Scrappy Lone Star Block

I’ve been working on getting ready for the Scrappy Lone Star class I am teaching at Sew Modern this Saturday.  I made this 1/2 scale Scrappy Lone Star as an example of how to make Lone Stars in various sizes. I started with 1.5″ strips and the finished block is 20″.  The Lone Star measures 18″ from point to point.


Here it is next to the original Lone Star.  It’s the perfect size for a throw pillow, or a mini quilt.  I’d love to tackle a Queen-Sized Star sometime in the near future for our bed.

I’ll get some stats up on the blog soon on how to resize the Scrappy Lone Star for your own projects!

  1. I love, love, LOVE your lone star quilt in every size. I noticed you added more black to this recent version and it is striking! I live in MN and can’t attend your class, but still will make one in the near future. It’s definitely on my “to do” list.

  2. Love the Lonestar. Please publish the Q-sized dimensions when you finish it. Got to make it! Already have my scraps waiting

  3. Wow, your lone stars are so beautiful! I want to do one someday. I’ll be looking at your resizing numbers! Thank you for doing the work, my math skills are shaky!!

  4. I love the colors in your smaller Lone Star! I’m impressed with your precision to work with 1.5 inch wide pieces on the bias. I’m not sure I’d have the patience.

    I just used your tutorial to make a Scrappy Lone Star – great tutorial by the way! I included some smaller stars on my quilt, but with eight solid points – not pieced.
