Garden Party Star Quilt in Blue with Fort Worth Fabric Studio

This week is the lovely Garden Party in Blue Friday Bundle Batch with Fort Worth Fabric Studio! I just love all those blue fabrics together! Does this quilt look familiar???? It's the matching one to the Garden Party in Pink Bundle!

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.

Tutorial for Garden Party Star Quilt (53" x 53")


Cutting -Be careful cutting as you will use almost the entire fat quarter. 

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 Navy
(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!!!

This fabric is a perfect match for your quilt. This fabric is perfect for seam matching as the pattern repeat is small so minimal fabric waste!!! I will definitely do this again!
