The Prairie Star pattern is a Quiltworx classic, first published as the Hawaiian Star, then republished as the Prairie Star, updated again in 2014, and has just gone through another update. The latest version of the pattern does have some differences to previous versions and is not compatible. The size has changed just slightly, but the changes have mostly come from updates to piecing techniques, providing units that have more color options, and elminating the use of Y-seams for final assembly. It includes 3 distinct groups, comprised of (8) Center Diamonds in a Group A, (8) 16” Squares in a Group B, and border blocks that result in an 85” Square quilt as Group C.
A layout for Prairie Star is provided in Quiltster in the Mixer Group Meadow Star Wall Quilt Mixer, where you can add fabrics and see what your quilt will look like before you make it. Quiltster will give you yardage for your unique colorway as well.
Corrections prior to 2019 apply only to the old version of the pattern.
