    Big Star Quilt as shown on Missouri Star Video

    Big Star Lap Quilt

    As shown in the Missouri Star Quilt Company video on www.youtube.com

    63 square

    I made mine in red, white and blue. Any colors look nice. My quilt was donated to Miracle Quilts for wounded soldiers of Oxford MI.

    Fabric Requirements:
    Color 1 & 2 (my red & blue) yard each
    Color 3 (star background, corner squares, and sashing) 2 yard
    Color 4 (my navy, snowball corners and sashing cornerstones) 3/4 yard
    Borders yard

    Cutting instructions for 4 big star blocks:
    10 squares 8 red, 8 white, 8 blue
    6 squares 16 white
    5 squares 16 solid navy
    2 squares - 9 solid navy (cornerstones)
    2 x 24 strips 10 pieces cut from 7 width of fabric strips for sashing.
    (Join all 7 strips before cutting into 24 lengths)
    4 wide borders cut from 6 width of fabric strips. (Join all 6 strips before cutting)

    Sew seams around the outside of pairs of 10 squares.
    Blue/Red, Blue/White, Red/White (you will have 2 sets of each color combination for each big star)
    Cut diagonally twice on all blocks.
    Press open and square up to 6
    Handle blocks gently as they have bias edges.

    Stitch the 5 navy squares to one corner of each of the white 6 diagonally. (Snowball)
    Press toward the corner, trim.

    Assemble into 4 large stars as shown in the diagram. Start with the center, make a pinwheel. Then place blue/white and red/white squares to extend the arms of the star. Lastly, place the white/navy snowball squares in the corners. Join into rows, and then join rows matching corners of blocks.

    Add the 24 strips as sashing to the large stars and use the 2 navy squares as the corner stones. The sashing is important as it will stabilize the bias edges of the stars.

    After the 4 stars are joined together, measure through the center of the quilt top to obtain the measurement for the borders. Attach the side borders, and then do the same for the top and bottom borders.

    Beautiful. That is so nice of you to get permission to do this. I have been wanting to make one of these forever. Just hope my looks just like yours when I'm done. Do you cut your strips/triangle by hand or do you use a die cutter? Thanks for sharing.
