Christmas Star- Free Quilt Block Pattern

There's a flurry of Christmas sewing going on across the internet at the moment. Its lovely to see so many gorgeous gifts being made and exchanged, with so much thought and love sewn into each and every stitch. Instead of giving you a pattern this year, I decided to design a free Christmas block which can be used in what ever project you are planning or working on during this festive season.
I kept it simple; a two toned paper pieced, five pointed star which is perfect for Christmas and all of those projects you may have planned. I've drafted templates for the four sizes which I think are the most useful; from a tiny 4"- to the larger 10" and I think they are cute to use as part of a larger project or as a focal block for smaller projects.
These blocks go together quickly and easily, with each star taking me about an hour to complete, so you have time to make heaps!. You could use them for countless projects and I've included a few suggestions at the end of the pattern, to help you out. If you need some more inspiration, pop over to Instagram and have a look at some of the lovely Christmas projects being sewn or grab a coffee and head to Pinterest for some endless crafty inspiration :)
Aren't Bonnie and Camille fabrics perfect for Christmas sewing, or any project for that matter? I love these colour combinations; one so festive and the other more icicle/winter inspired.
My free Christmas Star pattern includes full instructions, diagrams and all the templates required for each size, plus a colouring sheet to help you with fabric/colour selections prior to sewing.

I hope you have fun with this pattern and I hope it inspires you to make some gorgeous handmade gifts this Christmas, sewn with lots and lots of love. ♥♥♥
Happy sewing :)

Thank you, Rose. It's so pretty and crisp looking. If it took you an hour, it'll take me five. LOL

Thank you for the pattern. I live in Texas, USA and we are always looking for star shapes. I will start following your blog. Someone posted a photo of the block onto Pinterest that is how I found you. If you are on Facebook I will look you up there too. Thanks a bunch!

Thank you so much for the pattern. I haven't been quilting for long and I recently learned how to do paper piecing so I could make the curvy log cabin Christmas tree with a star on top--and this will be the star!

Thank you for your Christmas star pattern. I've been looking for a block to offset some hexie blocks. I problem is my hexie blocks are 12 inches finished. I could put a border on each star block, but I wondered how can I enlarge the 10 inch to a 12 inch block?
