Carpenter Star

After waffling most of yesterday and today about what to work on, I decided to start the Carpenter Star this afternoon. It’s another one of the kits I cut from stash while I was at Big Canoe in July. I’ve done this one before in brown and pink and this time I’m working with green and brown.


As I’ve said before, I often refer back to my own instructions when I’m making a quilt a again. This one is easy to piece in 4 sections and quick too – I’ve already got two done. I’m using a single fabric for the background here although the first one had a scrappy background. In this case, I was trying to cut multiple kits and it was just easier to use one.

This pattern also makes a great Christmas Tree Skirt. Mom has made several of them including this one.


It was beautiful along the bay tonight when we went out for our walk.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
    I love this quilt and will consider making it. What type of cutter do you use for your fabric? Is it an accuquilt, and if so what model? I have been considering purchasing one for awhile now and think it may help my efficiency in quilting.
    Thank you so much.

    I’ve always planned to make a carpenter’s wheel quilt. It makes a great Christmas tree skirt doesn’t it!
