How to make New Year Star Quilt Blanket
Celebrate New Year's Eve in style with this quilt blanket to ensure the New Year goes off with a bang!
This fabulous pattern, “New Year’s Star” is fun to make. It can be made in 3 sizes: 50″ x 66″, 66 x 82″ & 82 x 102″.
Choose 4 fabrics with 4 different colors. In this case, we choose pink, green, white and one retro color.
Pinwheels: Making the pinwheels begins by making half square triangles using the 3″ dark & medium squares. Trim to 2 1/2″ with your Tucker Trimmer. Arrange the trimmed squares into pinwheels.
Use Care Here! The blocks should spin exactly as shown in the pattern instructions.
V Block High/Low:
I have cut my background squares and side triangles for unit construction.
Following my pattern instructions I trimmed the background square and stitch a side triangle to it.
Press toward the side triangle, add the square to make the second low side triangle and trim.
Trim using the V Bock tool as shown above. Rotate and trim again.
By placing the high/low units around the pinwheels we get a great looking wonky star!
Make 8 of these easy framed squares.
Draw 2 diagonal lines on the back of the 5 1/2″ the background squares and align with the medium squares, stitch on lines.
Draw 2 diagonal lines on the back of the half square triangles (HST). Center the HST’s on a dark 5 1/2″ square, stitch on the lines, cut apart & press toward the large triangle.
Add your pieced inner borders and your final outer border.
