Garden Party Star Quilt with Fort Worth Fabric Studio

This week is the lovely Garden Party Friday Bundle Batch with Fort Worth Fabric Studio! I just love all those pink fabrics together! This Star Quilt Tutorial is my favorite as it uses the entire 8 fat quarters plus one yard of background fabric to make the quilt top and scrappy binding for a lap size quilt!!!! Keep reading for the Star Quilt Tutorial.

Star Points - 4 Fat Quarters  (cut from each fat quarter):
(1) 12" Square - cut on diagonal to make 2 triangles
(2) 4.5" x 11.5" Rectangles
(2) 2.5 x 18" Binding 

*Hint for cutting for fat quarters. Cut (1) 12" x 21" rectangle. Then subcut the (1) 12" square. This will leave you with (1) 9" x 12" rectangle- subcut into (2) 4.5" x 11.5"rectangles. 

Star Center - 4 Fat Quarters (cut from each fat quarter):
(1) 11.5" square
(2) 4.5" x 11.5" Rectangles
(2) 2.5 x 18" Binding 

Background - Riley Blake Swiss Dots in Pink
(4) 12" Squares- cut on diagonal to make 2 triangles from each square (total of 8)
(4) 11.5" Squares

Corner 4-patches
(16) 2.5" squares (I cut these from my binding strips above)

1. Sew (1) Star Point Triangle to (1) Background triangle to create a 11.5" half-square triangle. Make 8 total.

2. Sew (4) four-patch blocks to create corner blocks

3. Layout squares as shown below and sew together.

4. Quilt. I chose to stipple-meander my quilt. I "might" be addicted to stippling....I just can't stop! :)

5.  Bind. I just love a scrappy binding! Plus the backing matches perfectly!!!

A bit more about the backing fabric: Flutter & Float Flower Crown Pink by Blend Fabrics

This fabric is a perfect match for your quilt. I even tried something new...matching up the pattern for the backing seam! This fabric is perfect for seam matching as the pattern repeat is small so not much fabric waste!!! I will definitely do this again!

The color is a off in this picture, but the seam almost hidden :) 

I just love this Garden Party Star Quilt!!! I'm so excited to give this quilt to a very special teacher!!!
