As a young married woman we only had a quilt to put on our bed. While I wanted a beautiful bedding set to look at, I then
settled for the quilt and mismatched pillows. As we were married longer I ended up loving quilts, piling on white pillows, lace edged sheets....I still love that look. And one quilt in particular I have that I got from a wonderful trip to Oklahoma was a Star quilt. All these years later my heart leans towards star quilts. The ones I have are intricately made and quilted.
Looking at one with fondness, I thought, surely I could make a simple pattern for a miniature star quilt to fit on a little bed.
This pattern is the result of fond memories, and my love for all things quilted. I also taught my kids to have a love for quilts....reminding them, the generations before us, many of those precious relatives, are the ones who made and touched the very quilt they snuggled up in.
If you are a beginner seamstress or a seasoned one, I think you will enjoy the ease of this little quilt, sheet, flag pillow and Euro Sham Pillows. It really is one of the most simple patterns I have made. I made about 10 of these quilts while creating this pattern. I couldn't seem to stop making them!
I do not use batting. If you have purchased dollhouse bedding from me you will know I don't use batting! I think it ends up making the bedspread or quilt like a hot pad! So I am not fond of batting....even though I am a quilter of 40 years.
The quilts when completed are about 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" square. They can be made smaller by making the framing strips smaller.

I had someone order 400.00 worth of products, and then cancel a few days later as I was mailing out their package. That is rough....especially if you just made your house payment!
