Sixteen Point Star Quilt Block Pattern. Examine the Sixteen Point Star quilt block and you'll discover several ways to assemble its patchwork. We'll sew the star quilt pattern using a combination of squares combined with half square triangle units (HST) and quick pieced no waste flying geese, making assembly a breeze.

Breaking down the components in that way makes it easy to play with fabrics. For example, maybe you would prefer to use more than one fabric for the star tips, or in the square that sits between each group of tips. My star tips are all a rosy pink... yours can differ. The quilt block finishes at 12" square. Read through all instructions before beginning.

I've been playing with 60 degree - or equilateral - triangles this past week and made a fun little star quilt block. So while I was at it, I decided to make a quick and simple tutorial to show how I did it. The equilateral triangle is a fun one to play with. The best part is that they're easy to sew together without any Y seams. For this project you will want 24 light, low-volume prints, triangles and 12 red triangles, 3 triangles each from 4 different red prints.

There are lots of ways to cut 60 degree, or equilateral triangles. I used a new 4 1/2" triangle die from AccuQuilt, which I love. If you don't have a triangle die-cut blade, don't despair! For this project, if you are using a ruler, cut a 4 1/4" wide strip and then use a ruler to cut the 60 degree angles, rotating the ruler to get multiple equilateral triangles from the strip. Equilateral triangles can also be cut using a regular quilting ruler as long as it has a 60 degree line. Lay out the triangles in the design you want.
