This quilt is much easier to make than it looks. There are two sizes offered: Lap size which is 57″ square and Double size which is 84″ square. There are two different blocks in this quilt and they both measure 14″ square.

I think this quilt would look wonderful in red, white and blue, or with a large floral for the block centers (which is also perfect for fussy cutting). I played with my software and love this version using Catalina fabric by Fig Tree for Moda Fabrics.

One of my pattern testers, Wendy, has been quilting for just a little over a year. She made the smaller version and had no problem with the instructions (whew!)! Thank you, Wendy!

I love the way the Lincoln Star block looks like it’s set on point. All of the pieces are cut from squares and rectangles – no tricky triangles! The simpler, alternating block sews up very quickly, making this quilt go together in no time.

Instead of marking diagonal lines on my fabric, I used Diagonal Seam Tape by Cluck Cluck Sew. It’s a huge time saver! I’ve mentioned it before; it’s basically Washi tape with a center marking line and 1/4″ markings on each side. You use the markings to guide your fabric through your machine.

Diagonal Seam Tape is wonderful to use instead of marking diagonal lines on your fabric.

Thanks for cheering me on and motivating me to finish this pattern. It will remain on sale for the rest of December. If you make it, I’d love to see a photo. Use the hashtag #Lincolnstarsquilt if you post it on Instagram.

  1. It is so refreshing to see a new pattern where both blocks complement each other for a great quilt pattern–Well thought out and balanced–you have mastered the “art” of quilt design!

  2. Nice, Julie, that turned out to be very attractive … I like that it appeals to both the traditional eye, and to the modern quilter’s eye … lovely, interesting design.

  3. I really love this quilt and the fabric on your quilt. I’m going to buy and add another row for my parents queen bed. I’ve been looking for something new and different.
    Thanks
