Double Studded Star Quilt - Weekend Warrior Mini Retreat

Join Colleen for a fun weekend and put together this fun quilt project. It would make a wonderful holiday gift for someone special! Lunch provided for both days.

We’ll make this gorgeous Double Studded Star Quilt from Missouri Quilt Co. Block Magazine using 5” squares. While it looks difficult, it’s made entirely of squares and rectangles.

This class will teach the 53” x 53” size from the magazine, which will make a great cuddle quilt or wall hanging.  We’ll also talk about options to go bigger either by adding borders or making more blocks.  See below for options on adding blocks.

2 metres background fabric

*Note: I have taken a very conservative approach to estimating the background based on my experience making the class sample.

**Can do this with two packages if we add a few 2.5” squares in a coordinating print(s).
