Berenstain Bears star quilt

Bear Country School
 Are you looking for something fun and quick to make?
All you need is
 1 charm pack, 
3/4 yd background fabric,
1/3 yd inner border,
 1 1/2 yds for border and binding
The entire pattern is listed below but the following pics are some 
step by steps so you can see how easy this ruler makes sewing "off" corners. 
Blocks like snowballs etc are perfect to use this technique
 and there is no marking involved.
Quilt measures 48" x 48"

Folded Corner Clipper, Stock #502
Prairie Sky Quilting

 With fabrics right side together, place the ruler on the fabric and trim. 
(the EXTRA trimmed triangles can be sewn together and used for another project.)
see how the ruler lines up at the point and includes the seam allowance

sew 1/4"

this method can also be done on pieces that are already sewn together such as the two squares above.
add the bella solid square
I also sewed all my "extra" triangles together as shown in the background.

  1. omg this fabric is just adorable! my children loved these books and I probably can recite many of them by heart still from reading them so many times!
    great memories, thanks!
    I think I may just need to make them lap quilts with this line

  2. I love any notion that makes quilting easier!

  3. yes... we are just in love with the Bears around here! I"m so glad that moda has come out with this line!
