Royal Star is such a fun quilt for showing off prints, playing with color, and experimenting with value.
Prints can really make the design sparkle.
Choose fabrics all in the same color family for a cohesive look.
Change where the light, medium, and dark values live in the quilt to create different emphasis.
If you like to have the pattern at your fingertips before starting, we’ve got you covered.
In addition to the free pattern, we’ve written a special Royal Star pattern you can purchase: Ombré Royal Star!
The Ombré Royal Star ePattern features a 60″ x 60″ version of the quilt with special instructions for using Northcott Stonehenge Gradations Ombré fabric to create a stunning, unique quilt. The pattern also includes instructions for the 80″ x 80″ quilt with easy-to-follow instructions, and optional borders to make a 90″ x 108″ quilt. With the Ombré Royal Star ePattern there are more ways than ever to make your Royal Star special.
