This quilt is pretty easy. You can stack repeats to fussy-cut shapes, or just fussy-cut single motifs from single layers. There are two paper templates in the pattern, one for the easy eight-blade version, and one for the harder twelve-blade version, that you can just put a circle on the center if you prefer. Includes a simple method for making quick and durable thick plastic templates. Applique stars by hand or machine. Included tips for stacking and cutting accurate repeats!

This pattern features 8 sizes, wall to king! Includes on-point and straight settings! For 11" and 12" blocks, accurate paper templates for stars
Also included! The twelve-blade version has a Dresden template with a center. This is a challenge for any quilter, with twelve seams intersecting in the center. A circle can cover the center, or you can fussy-cut your stack so that you have a solid center. To avoid the center altogether, just snip off the center of the cut stack of blades, removing 1/2". Cover the hole with an appliqued circle. It looks great!
