Forever Stars Throw Quilt in Red White and Blue!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy Forever Stars quilt in red, white, and blue!  Forever Stars is a pattern released last year.  It is definitely a quick pattern with the large pieces.

The Forever Stars quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

All the Sizes!

The Forever Stars quilt pattern includes all the sizes - Baby, Lap, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King. Whichever size you're after, the pattern has you covered.  And you'll use it again and again when you see how quickly it goes together and that it has every size you'll need.  

This quilt is the Throw size.

Baby Size 48" x 48"

Lap Size 48" x 64"

Throw Size 64" x 80"

Twin Bed Size 64" x 88"

Queen Bed Size 96" x 104"

King Bed Size 112" x 112"

Giant Stars!

The stars are gloriously huge and oh - so - breathtaking!  Their large size makes a very stunning quilt.  The picture below shows the quilt on a Twin size bed which really shows how big the stars are.  

Forever Stars would be a beautiful quilt for the Quilt of Valor program for veterans.

Fabric Selection

This Forever Stars Quilt is made with four fabrics from my stash, two medium blues and two reds, all with white in them.  The background is solid white.  The backing is a white fabric with red stars.  Most of these fabrics are from Riley Blake Designs.

The pattern is written for four fabrics making up each star.  Scraps would make a beautiful quilt with each star made with four fabrics with a wide variety of fabrics among the stars.

Quick and Easy Quilt Pattern

Forever Stars is a quick and easy quilt pattern!  It's a nice balance of half-square triangles and simple squares.  Paired with the large pieces, this makes a very quick quilt to make.

This pattern is suitable for beginning quilters who have a few quilts under their belts.  Instructions on how to make HSTs is included in the pattern, but general quilt-making skills such as how to cut fabric, are not taught in the pattern.  

Longarm Quilting

This Throw size quilt is quilted with a swirl and echoed star quilting design in white thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.  

This quilt pattern would look great quilted with straight lines or diagonal lines, or even a simple meander.

The binding is the same blue as one of the blues in the stars, made from leftover backing fabric.

The Forever Stars quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.
