DIY Scrappy Star Block Quilt

This DIY scrappy star block quilt by Lori Holt on YouTube makes an easy project because she does a great job explaining all of the instructions with details. Plus, you can use any style of fabric to create a vintage or modern style quilt. I think it would be a cool project to start on if you want to make one big quilt to hang up in a room. This seems like a simple project to work on because you can sew a lot of the items in one sitting and patch them together. I do love the different kinds of fabrics she uses for each point of the star because it adds a nice variety on the whole look. I think this is a great way to use a lot of your fabric scraps because you can use them up without having them go to waste.


  • 2 1/2″ square fabrics
  • 2 1/2  x  4 1/2″ rectangle fabric
  • rotary fabric cutter
  • ruler
  • iron
  • sewing machine
  • design board
  • quick press seam roller


First, start off with small rectangle fabric scraps and put the two together. Use one with a background and one scrappy print. Also, use an accurate quarter seam allowance and just sew a bunch of rectangles to get them done at once.

Overall, I think this scrappy star block quilt is so cute and would be a nice decor to just hang up around the house in your craft room. Honestly, I’m not big on sewing so I’m not sure if I would make this for myself. I think it would be a nice gift to make for someone to put in a nursery room. Plus, it’s a good way to make a banner out of multiple blocks or a big blanket.
