Star Dahlia

Taught by Lisa Garlick

Class Description

Come grow your very own gorgeous Star Dahlia garden with fabric! This unique pattern was originally published in the Kansas City Star Newspaper in 1932 with template figures and little to no instructions. Lisa tracked down the hard to find block pattern and identified an easy method to piece this Star Dahlia block together. When created in yellow and white…the Amish called this quilt block Golden Glow. The unique Star Dahlia block features tiny gathers meeting at the appliqued center. This quilt would be equally beautiful done in a two-color scheme or scrappy like Lisa did. You decide! The quilt size is 68x80 but could be easily adapted smaller or larger. You could also make the block into stunning accent pillows.

Supply List

  • 4 yards of background fabric
  • 4 yards of print fabric…either all one color or various scraps (fat quarters would work fine).
