Exploding Christmas Star- Free Pattern!

Our friend Agnes Stadler made up this festive holiday mini and wanted to share the pattern! Thank you for spreading holiday cheer, Agnes!

Finishes at 24x24inches

You’ll need: (these are the colors Agnes used, but personalize it to make it your own!)

1 yard Kona Chinese red

1/2 yard Kona white

1 yard Northern Light Trees

26×26 in. scap batting

Cut:

1 8×8 in square (this will be the star center)

12 5×5 in squares in red

12 5×5 in squares in white

8 4×4 in squares in red

2 2.5 in wof strips in red

Piece:

With 12 red and 12 white squares make a total of 24 half square triangles.

Trim down to 4×4 inches.

Place around 8×8 in. center, also using the red squares for corners.

Make a border with the 2.5 in red strip ( or leftovers of the backing).

Quilt with your preferred method and bind.

There will be enough fabric left to make a mini-version of this star that finishes 12.5 inches if you cut squares to 3 inches and trim to 2.5. In this case the center is cut 4.5 in.
