Texas Star Quilt Block - Free Paper Piecing Pattern
Three years ago, I saw a tutorial for a beautiful star block over on Blue Elephant Stitches. Here's what Jolene had to say about this block:
"The pattern originally came from an older quilting book that is full of traditional quilt block patterns. It included templates, but absolutely no instructions. I've made the templates into a printable pdf for you to print out, and I'll try to give a few directions for making this block."
I started cutting out pieces for these blocks, but ugh, apparently I have not the patience for template cutting! So I abandoned that project.
Fast forward to now, and I love the look of that block so much, it's still been rolling around in my head. I took another look at it and realized I could easily make a paper piecing pattern for it.
Score. Now I can rotary cut for the win.
You can grab this pattern for free here on Craftsy. The block finishes at 12".
I didn't trace it, so it's probably not precisely the same as Jolene's, but I think the pretty look is still there!
I'll probably set these aside and let some ideas stir until I decide what to do with them.
For now, download away, my friends. Download away.
