Smashing Sashings Children's Quilt

I recently discovered a wonderful alphabet panel designed by Jennifer Heynen for In the Beginning fabrics and thought, what a great sashing star quilt that would make!  So I made one!

It's a great example of how easy and quick it is to use an all-over print in place of pieced blocks to make a smashing quilt -- the sashing stars are the patchwork!  It's 47 inches and uses 2 alphabet panels.  Easy peasy to make, and perfect for a child's nap or play quilt.

And we made a 2-page pattern that you can download for free!  It's on our website, or just click the link below and save it to your computer.  Info about our original Sashing Star Set is here.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a happy kiddo quilt!! Love it!

  2. What about the templates. Is there a special set to make the star sashing.

  3. Yes, the original Sashing Star Set is used to cut the sashing strips and star points. There is a link in my post above that goes to our website for more information on the sashing tools. :)
