Four X star quilt block – video tutorial

How to make a Four X star quilt block?

The video demonstrates how to make this very easy Four X star block.

Note: there’s one mistake in the measurements given. The white and red fabric squares are 3 1/2”, the rest are cut at 2 7/8”.

Use strong contrast between fabrics for best results.

How to use this block?

Buy My lucky stars quilt pattern on Etsy.

  • Size: 66″ x 66″
  • Quilt technique: traditional piecing or foundation paper piecing
  • Skill level: Confident beginner.
  • Fabric collection: I made the quilt on the cover from my old stash but I designed with Moda Farm Fresh collection in mind and the main diagrams use that fabric collection. This collection has very suitable black and white fabrics, even acqua that will make a beautiful quilt.

Four X star quilt block - Video tutorial


  1. You have THE BEST quilt piecing videos! And I’ve been watching such online for a long time.

    THE best. Awesome editing, absolutely completely showing all steps – even to showing peeking to be sure points and seams match right for pinning & sewing.

    I so much appreciate the lack of droning explanations and slow piecing!


    And you can quote me.
