Star Dance Scrappy Quilt Kit

Star blocks and asymmetrical elements make this quilt both a delight to stitch and enjoy. The split between light and dark stars creates a secondary diamond shape with strong diagonal lines. The addition of sashing creates secondary nine patches and makes your eye dance across the quilt to admire all the tiny details. The scrappy version of Star Dance comes alive with a variety of vibrant colors and prints, while black prints balance the design. Or choose a soft palette of aqua and blue batiks to create a soothing two-color quilt.

Finished Project Size: 79¹/₂" x 79¹/₂"

If you wish to choose your own colorway, you will need to purchase the Star Dance Quilt Pattern separately.

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...

"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

-Land Ahoy Orlando Traveler

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
