Big Star is a favorite at the Calico Hutch. One super-large star surrounded by an inner border and squares makes it not only easy to put together but nice to look at too. The pattern calls for 3/8 yard of fabric for each star point, however, the Calico Hutch puts one half yard cuts in the kits. The extra yardage makes it possible to add two rows of squares on the top and bottom making the finished length a toe-warming 88 inches. The fabrics in the kits are all soft as ever yarn-dyed wovens. The star itself is made from huge half-square triangle squares making it easy to put together in a day. Big pieces = fast work. Star block alone measures 48 x 48 inches. Optional double-queen layout included.
