Twinkle is one of my favorite patterns in my best-selling book Fat Quarter Workshop. It is a large scale block that features two colliding stars.
The design of the block makes it great for fabric collections that have a lot of low volume neutrals that don’t offer a lot of value contrast with the background. We use them in the center of the block and the darker fabrics as the star points to clearly define the block and all all the fabrics to shine.
The original fabric in the book quilt is long gone, so we remade Twinkle for this tutorial in Little Forester from Art Gallery Fabrics in the crib size. Those little foxes were just begging to become a baby quilt and we have some kits for you all while supplies last. You can grab one here: https://shop.quiltaddictsanonymous.com/product/twinkle-crib-sized-quilt-kit-featuring-little-forester/
Twinkle features large blocks, with just a few half square triangles and only four points to match per block. So it is great for newbies wanting to give half square triangles a try, or experienced quilters who don’t want to spend their life trimming up half square triangles.
In the video I give you in depth instructions on how to make super accurate half square triangles that aren’t all stretched out and and warped so you can have a quilt with points that all end up where they are supposed to.
