Asterisks Quilt - Peppermint Version

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

Hi friends!

Today I am so excited to share a quilt that I first started working on during the Snowflake Sew Along last year - my Peppermint Asterisks quilt!

I made this version of the Asterisks quilt during the Snowflake snowalong because the white asterisks make the perfect snowflakes.

This pattern is pretty versatile - it can be snowflakes falling, a mid century modern design, fireworks or party confetti. Asterisks is a fun beginner pattern with a few different layout options. 

Fabrics used:

If you participated or saw some of the progress during the Snowalong last year you might have seen some of these images. This is the Asterisks quilt I worked on week by week along with the Bufflao Check Snowflake quilt. You can see more about the sew along here

Quilting Info:

For this quilt I chose a white thread - I thought it would coordinate well with the white asterisks and also with the white stitching detail along the holly berry leaves on the backing of the quilt. 

I created a diagonal crosshatch pattern across the quilt using a straight line stitch and passing through the points of the squares. This type of quilting is really easy to accomplish since the quilt is made of half square triangles and squares.
