Split star quilt block – video tutorial

I came across this great tutorial for a split star by Stash Bee and I couldn’t resist putting it to work.

This tutorial not only teaches you how to make this great block but also it teaches you to make half square triangles and flying geese at the same time. It’s certainly a skill booster.

Fabric on the video

  • Michael Miller’s Cotton couture in purple
  • Tula Pink’s Hipnotized circles in Sorbet.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. I’ll be back when the political adds end. I’m largely off Facebook for the same reason. I’ll miss your clever videos.

    Kind regards, Katie Steele


  2. Your comment encouraged me to block political ads from my channel. Let’s see if that works 🙂


  3. I love this tutorial! I think it keeps everything simple and direct. Great instructions. But I am missing the fabric needed for the quilts. Could you assist with that please?
