Today let's look at the Christmas Star quilt block. With Christmas just around the corner, you probably won't have time to make anything with this block this year but why not get a head start on next year! This traditional Christmas Star quilt block that I'll be demonstrating in this tutorial is attributed to the Kansas City Star. Let's jump in!
Today we're going to look at the traditional quilt blockEddystone Light. I was drawn to this block - was it the star (I'm partial to star blocks) or the outside border? Either way, it's a fun block to do - not super easy but not too difficult either. I was also intrigued by the nameEddystone Light so I did some research.
This variation of an Eight Pointed Star quilt block goes together quickly and makes a nice secondary design in a quilt. Lots of star blocks are called Eight Pointed Star - this one could be considered a variation of the Ohio Star block as well.
This Domino quilt block is so easy to put together. It uses only squares and modified flying geese units and sews up quick! I've made my block scrappy but it also looks great in a planned color scheme.
