Favorite Things Quilt by Gerri Robinson + Free Pattern

This 68" square star quilt was designed and pieced by Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs and machine quilted by Deb Miner.

 The nine 16" star blocks all have blue points sewn with half-square triangle units and scrappy centers made with hourglass units.

The blocks are assembled with vertical sashing strips and two horizontal sashing rows with cornerstones. Gerri's instructions and diagrams for block construction
are clear and easy enough for a confident beginner to follow.

Gerri advises you to save cutting the inner (C.4) and outer border (A.1 & 2) strips until the center unit is complete. Then, measure the center of the quilt vertically and horizontally to determine the correct lengths for your quilt and cut to those measurements. This tip allows for individual variations in piecing with ¼" seam allowances. Sew the border strips to the top, bottom, and sides of the quilt, layer with batting and backing, pin baste, and machine quilt as desired. An allover floral or leaf pattern would suit this pretty quilt perfectly!

Included in kit:
Free Pattern: Favorite Things
Approx: 8 1/2 yards fabric for top, borders and binding
(Fabrics used in these quilts are as pictured and from Favorite Things
(we made no substitutions).
