Blue & Green Stars

Click here for basic cutting directions for my Blue/Green Stars (PDF file)

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.

While I rarely post fabric amounts needed – the following are UNTESTED yardages per EQ7. They assume that the long border strips are pieced, that the Blue will be used for the binding, and I’d suggest having extra fabric if using the Accuquilt GO to make this quilt.

Blue – 2.5 yards

Green – 1.5 yards

Cream/background fabric – 1.5 yards

Please note: Read over the instructions carefully before beginning and please email me with any questions.

Quilt uses the following AccuQuilt GO dies:

  • 4 inch quarter square triangle
  • 2 inch strip die (sashing)
  • 2.5 inch strip die (you could use the 2 inch finished square for the blocks)
  • 1.5 inch strip die

Mom added extra blocks for a larger quilt she made for my brother.

You could also make this in RWB as a Quilt of Valor

A 4×5 block setting with borders cut 2.5 inches would give you a quilt that was about 60×74 inches.

Approximate yardages from EQ7 for the top only — UNTESTED! If using the Accuquilt GO to cut quilt, I’d suggest having extra fabric on hand.

Red – 1.5 yards

Blue – 2.25 yards

White – 2.5 yards

  1. Just found your site with thanks to Judy L at Patchwork Times. Wow – such a giving person you are. My question – I do not have an Accuquilt Go and need to know if your sizes are the very same as what I would cut with a rotary cutter. Wasn’t sure so thought I would ask. Thanks from Judy C
