STAR QUILT PATTERNS (FREE)

Reverse Sawtooth Star Quilt Pattern

Offset star quilt
Tilted Froebel stars known as sawtooth stars are what this pattern is all about, as it features them in various colors, arranged in a 5 x 5 grid with every second star in the last and first row cut in half, and each star points touching the points of the neighboring stars, creating diamond and pentagon shapes from the quilt background.
La conner stars

Easy Carpenter Star Quilt

Pint size baby quilt
This pattern helps you make a beautiful baby quilt with a thin dark frame around the edges, a 4 x 4 grid of blocks separated by thin, slightly lighter straps between them, and a main motif on each block in the form of a square made of four smaller contrasting squares with contrasting triangles on their outer edges that together create the famous Froebel star.
Giant star baby quilt

Scrap jar stars
Here’s a star quilt pattern that helps you make a quilt in the size of your choice since it shows you how to make a lovely quilt scrap block with a white base, colored squares in each corner, and a colorful Froebel star that has a vibrant square made of many smaller squares in its middle that you can whip up in batches and join together to create a fine quilt.
Free cathedral stars quilt pattern
Elegance embodied as a quilt, that’s what this pattern is about, with blue Froebel stars that have lighter blue strips in a plus shape starting in their centers and stretching outward, set on the white background so they form a diamond shape that seems as if it’s sparkling brightly.
Scrappy Hunter’s Star
Stitch a few triangular pieces together to make an hourglass patch, add a double frame made of rhombus pieces in different colors around its edges, make sure the rhombuses are set properly, then sort such patches into a grid and you’ll get this gorgeous quilt with framed square blocks that have vibrant Froebel stars at the corners between them.
Farmhouse Star Quilt
Black and white will always stay classy and appealing, a statement proved by the pattern we have here that features a black background with a giant white Froebel star in the center of which sits a smaller star of the same kind in contrasting color with a gray square in its middle, set on a gray diamond shape, altogether playing with colors and creating a visual effect of a twinkling star.
Glowing Lone Star Quilt
Here comes a quilt that resembles those gorgeous blue, green, and turquoise shapes on the feathers of a peacock, since it has a deep blue frame around the edges, a thin baby blue frame inside it, then a large Froebel star that’s blue on its outer rims but turns wisteria green towards its middle, where sits another identical star smaller in size, blue in color with a baby blue central section.
Faux Feathered Star Quilt Pattern
Finished size: 40.5×40.5”
This pattern will show you how to cut up a lot of squares, rhombuses, and triangles out of deep crimson fabric and sew them to a white background fabric so they form a large octagonal star with its outer edges jagged and a center area with alternating triangles pointing inward to a square, together looking like a star made of feathers.
Spring Joyful Barn Star
Get ready to feel the spring come into your home with a quilt that features a thin colorful outer frame that has one sawtooth star on a colored diamond inside it, set on a white background, as well as a small Froebel star on a green diamond with a white square background inside the larger star, finished with a colorful square in the center of the small star.
Star cluster mini quilt

Star blocks patterns
Lone star block
The lovely quilting block we have here has a magnificent Froebel star on a white background as the main motif, but the amazing part about it is the illusion it creates, making it seem as if there’s a circle inside it even though it’s just colorful rhombuses around an additional, smaller Froebel star.
Lemoyne star quilt block

Star spangled block
Take a few red, white, and black triangle pieces of fabric, then stitch them onto a white square so they create a sawtooth star with red tips, a white square with a black diamond on it, as well as a small red square inside the diamond and you’ll have a fine block for your quilting sessions.
