Because my quilts are scrappy and made from stash, fabric yardage calculations for most of my quilt instructions are not available and when included, they are estimates only – click here for more information.

A more recent version made with leftover strips from another quilt.

And here’s the finished quilt.

    I’m looking for a pattern “Variable Star Amish Quilt”. It has a star in the center and 6 concentric borders around the star. Can you help me.

    This is a beautiful quilt. Thanks for including it in your free patterns! I can now start sorting through my material to start one like this.
    Thanks a bunch!

    Just came across your website. I love it! Thank you for all the wonderful patterns. There is still hope I will be able to use up my scraps. More importantly, I’m going to share a string quilt pattern with my quilt group. We have several new ladies and thought it would be fun to do a group project for our next quilt to be donated. Not only is the pattern user-friendly but I will suggest we tie it. Thank you again! Marrcy


  12. What I love about this site is the amount of thought that obviously went into all the preparation and attention to detail. Everything is so user friendly and the quilts are so varied and beautifully made. I being to a quilting group situated on the west coast of Africa,close to Cape Town. Since coming across your amazing site, everyone is using your patterns and raving about them. Quilters are such generous people, always willing to share. But you are at the top of that list. Thank you.
