Nova Star Pillow - Anaheim

Mel's Sewing & Fabric Center
Nova Star Pillow
Instructor: Ruth Locke

Supply List:

It is such fun to make new quilt patterns but sometimes we just do not have the time for a whole quilt. The Nova Star pattern is perfect for a large, quilted pillow, 26” square when finished. You can have the fun of exploring the pattern and be finished in a day or 2. This is a great scrap buster. You will need pieces as large as an 8” square.


Below are the fabric requirements. You can use as few as 8 fabrics and repeat them on all 4 blocks, or you can use 32 different fabrics and each block will be unique.
