Here’s a classic pieced beauty, ready for you to get started on today! This intriguing Scarlet Stars lap quilt, adapted from a quilt designed by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith, features a 9″ Star Block in two color arrangements; an interesting secondary pattern appears when they are sewn together.
You’ll want to be sure you’re sewing with an accurate 1/4″ seam allowance so the patches and blocks fit together well – watch our free video lesson for a refresher before you begin.
If you’d prefer to make Sarah and Dolores’ original bed size version of Scarlet Stars, please refer to the pattern in the November/December 2013 issue of McCall’s Quilting, available now in print or digital format at our Quilt and Sew Shop. (Note: Homestead Hearth is offering a kit for their bed size version.)
The free lap quilt pattern finishes at 67½˝ x 76½˝. Click here for the link to download the FREE pattern for a lap size version of this Scarlet Stars quilt.
