Patchwork Lone Star Quilt Pattern

$14.00

A variation on the classic Lone Star Quilt, the purpose of this pattern is to make a patchwork Lone Star by using what you already have on hand. An excellent stash buster, it can use remaining fabric from Fat Quarters, Fat Eighths, or yardage from previous projects. Lindlee, the designer of Plains & Pines quilts, recommends at least 8 different fabrics to achieve the patchwork look. Perfect for the advanced beginner, this pattern has no Y seams!

Includes instructions for three sizes:

  • Crib (48″ x 48″)
  • Small Throw (56″ x 66″)
  • Large Throw (66″ x 72″)

Lindlee grew up on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, north of Wolf Point, and was exposed to Star Quilts from a young age. Though not a member of the tribe herself, Lindlee worked with Rose Atkinson – a long-time instructor of Star Quilt Techniques at Fort Peck Community College – when designing this pattern. Five dollars from each sale of this pattern go towards providing materials for students of this course who are unable to purchase their own.

Lindlee’s hope and intention with her patterns is to bring awareness to the history of the Star Quilt on the Fort Peck Reservation while doing something to help support and continue the tradition.

For the Sioux and Assiniboine Tribes, the star quilt remains one of the most honorable items a family can give or receive. Giveaways of star quilts are held at pow-wows, basketball tournaments, memorials, and other events.

Those interested in making a Star Quilt should take intentional steps to understand and appreciate the history and culture of these amazing quilts. You can learn more from Lindlee’s blog posts – Part 1 and Part 2 – and Kim Elise Taylor’s academic paper on the topic.
