Free Pattern Friday – Bethlehem Star Quilt Block

Free Pattern Friday - Bethlehem Star Quilt Block from Hugs are Fun

I’ve always loved the look of this block and have seen it called both a Bethlehem Star and the Swoon block.

It’s on my list of quilt blocks I want to make, but until I finally do it, I’ll have to settle for this cross stitch pattern version. Between this and my Alternating Stars pattern, I really want to make a huge cross stitch quilt sampler so you can expect more of these!

When stitched on 14ct Aida the block will be 5″ square.

    Thank you for sharing this cute star quilt pattern! I love this look but was always a little wary to try it out myself since it looks complicated. However, after looking at this post, I think it’s something I can definitely do! I’ll try it out for a Christmas present for my mother in law!
