About the Star Pulse Quilt
The Star Pulse quilt design is a modern take on the classic sawtooth star block. The quilt will radiate out the joy and care you put into making it.
The Star Pulse lap quilts uses 6 fabrics and throw quilts require 8 fabrics. The fabric requirements will include renderings and coloring pages for each quilt size.
Star Pulse Options & Sizes / Finished Measurements
Single Background Lap (60″ x 60″)
Single Background Throw (60″ x 72″)

As part of the Star Pulse quilt along, there will be bonus HSTs created during the piecing process. At the end of the quilt along, I will offer a suggested pattern and way to put those bonus HSTs to immediate use in a quilt top. The lap size bonus quilt finishes at 32″ x 32″, and the throw size bonus quilt finishes at 32″ x 40″. The additional yardage will be included in the fabric requirements, which will be released at the start of the quilt along on December 1st.
