Chained Star

Class Description:
A gorgeous way to bust some scraps! This Quilt look great in any type of fabric and is easy to piece! If you came to the quilt show at the Blackfoot Quilt Fest 2015, you probably walked down Mystery Ally.  This quilt was our groups’ mystery quilt in 2014 and we displayed them in the quilt show, and called it Mystery Ally!

Fabric Requirements:
Background Fabric-
48×48- 2 yards
48×72- 3 yards
72×72- 4 Yards
72×96- 5 ½ yards
96×96- 7 yards

Cutting Instructions:

The smallest size is first, then the other sizes are in parentheses and progressively larger. For example: 5(8,13,18,25) – so if you were making the 72”x96” size you’d always use the next to last number – 18 in this case.

Cut from SCRAPS
2” squares – 168(256,392,528,712)

3 7/8” squares – 20(32,52,72,100) These are the star points and need to be cut in sets of 4 of the same fabric. For example – the smallest quilt would require 20 squares. You could cut all of the squares from the same fabric OR you could use 5 different fabrics and cut four pieces of each of the 5 fabrics.

Cut from BACKGROUND FABRIC . The background fabric needs to have high contrast to the scraps. I don’t really recommend using scraps for the background because you will need a unifying fabric to tie everything together. (for best usage of your yardage, start with largest pieces and work down to smallest pieces, using up the scraps as you go)
6½” x 12½” – cut 4(6,8,10,12)
7¼” x 7¼” – cut 5(8,13,18,25)
6½” x 6½” – cut 4 (this is the same amount for every quilt size)
3½” x 3½” – cut 20(32,52,72,100)
2” x 9 ½” – cut 24(38,60,82,112)
