Scrappy Star Quilt Tutorial
Monday, April 29, 2013
Happy Monday! Today I've got a fun Scrappy Star Quilt that comes together really fast by taking advantage of giant blocks! It's a twist on my Giant Vintage Star Quilt Tutorial! This is a fun summery quilt, perfect for a picnic at the park or a quick gift! It's a healthy throw size finishing at 68" square!
This was originally published as a guest tutorial on the Art Gallery Fabrics Blog.
I'm using my fabric line with Art Gallery Fabrics, Color Me Retro, for this quilt! I paired it with my favorite Pure Element solid, Lemonade!

- 1 1/2 yards of Pure Element solid in Lemonade
