A traditional setting of blocks, sashing, corner stones, and borders. When these are done in black, the illusion of the floating stars is created.
The stars are easily pieced using foundation paper (paper piecing technique).
There are six star patterns which can be combined to create a "star only" design or mixed with an additional open hexagon pattern for a star/hexagon layout. This "extra design" can also be used alone to create a non-star quilt. This would be a really good option if you have a beautiful print fabric that you want to accent. The hexagon center is a solid piece, and works well if you also want to showcase photos, embroidery pieces, etc.
The 9-prong Fiesta Flowers that surround each star or hexagon can be done in fusible applique or traditional applique.
Full size pattern paper foundation and applique pieces are included in the download pattern.
Full color suggestions are included.
Fabric requirements are estimated but can change based on your desired quilt (all starts, mixing hexagon/stars, all hexagon, etc.) Suggest if you want the appearance of a solid background, purchase 5 yards of black (or other color). If you want a different color for the sashings, they get about 4 yards of black and 1 yard of an alternate color for the sashings. The border is figured into the black fabric. But, if you want wider borders...you will need more fabric.
The stars and flowers are shown in a mix of colors. Scraps are a great solution! Or get a mixture of brights in fat quarters, fat eights, or layer cake size. Smaller pieces like nickles or strips will not work well for this pattern.
