    Carpenter's Star pattern

    Does anyone have a pattern for a large carpenter's star, queen-sized quilt? I'm looking for one with just one large star on the quilt, and not several smaller stars. Prefer squares and triangles only.

    Google and ye shall find!

    There's lots of bed size single CS patterns online
    Or you can just take a regular pattern and make the blocks whatever size you want.

    A queen bed is 60" wide so if you want the star to just be on top, you'll need the finished HSTs to be 7 1/2" because the star is 8 blocks wide. Then you can add borders for the drop - more on the ends, of course. Or you can use 11" blocks and the star will extend over the edges and won't need a border on the sides.

    I put a braided border on mine. Let me know if you want the link.
