The Asterisks quilt pattern is now available at Sewfinity!
WHY WE LIKE IT
Designed by Nicole of Modern Handcraft, the Asterisks Quilt is a great beginner quilt pattern with a midcentury modern vibe.
Lots of color combos are possible with this pattern: make the asterisks multi-colored or 1-color, and make the background 1-color or scrappy. Whichever you choose, Nicole shows you how with her clear instructions.
It comes together quickly: simple shapes and 2-at-a-time half-square triangle piecing make it pretty simple.
TIPS + TUTORIALS
- The pattern features instructions with diagrams throughout and a link for a coloring page.
- Diagonal Seam Tape would make sewing the half-square triangles a breeze!
INSPIRATION + IDEAS
Match-making our Kona Cotton Solids and Pure Solids to the Asterisks quilt pattern gives some really fun color combinations. Enjoy these digital mockups of the large throw sized 63" x 75". All you need for the quilt top is 3 yards of background fabric plus six 1-yard cuts (you'll have enough leftover for binding and some nice solid cuts for another project).

- Magenta = Carnation + Sassy Pink + Azalea + Honeysuckle + Valentine + Sangria
- Green Cyan = Azure + Candy Green + Jade Green + Bluegrass + Willow + Kelly
