Star Sampler Quilt | Block #5: Maple Star

PATTERN SHEET: star-sampler-quilt-block5

Hello Friends!

My apologies for taking so long to get block five out to you! The last few weeks have been busy with work and so limited my time (and energy) to get the tutorial filmed and edited! I hope you’ll understand. 🙂

So block five is a beautiful one, if I may say so myself. It’s called the Maple Star and is very similar in design to our last block which was the Janet’s Star. The only difference between the two are the extra opposing squares in corner units of the Maple Star. Everything else is exactly the same as the Janet’s Star! Don’t you just love it how some blocks are so close to each other in design, with just one slightly different element either added or taken away to create it into something else that’s so effective and lovely?! It’s one of the many things I love about patchwork!

Anyway, moving on… Let’s delve into how the Maple Star block is made!

As always, if you click on the pattern sheet linked at the top of this post, you’ll be able to find a full list of all of the measurements and cutting info, along with the fabrics* I’ve used to piece this block together! If you would like to use a similar 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here: June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend stitching up your blocks! Please do share them with me once you’re done – I love seeing what everyone is doing!

Also, to my friends in the States (and wherever else it’s celebrated in the world), Happy Halloween weekend – I hope it’s a spooky one!

Happy Sewing, Friends!


*A big thanks to Australian wholesale supplier and fabric distributer Dayview Textiles for supplying me with such beautiful fabrics! If you want to see all of the fabrics I’ll be using in this Quilt Along, check out this post where I share them all with you!
