Fractured Star

The Fractured Star was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only one foundation block, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project. It is meant to make those new to the process find confidence, understanding, and success.

The foundation papers for the Fractured Star were designed by Bradley and Judy Niemeyer. The instructions included herein describe the process of making one quilt. Additional papers are available for purchase to make a second quilt.

There are many ways to expand your Quiltworx designs into larger sizes with compatible border packages. If listed, you should purchase the Introduction Booklet for the size quilt you want.  Then, you should select expansion borders of your choice.  The following information explains ways to expand your quilt.
  • To expand this to a 118″ King, add a Group H, 118″ King Border of your choice
  • To create a 99″ quilt, leave off the outer border in the pattern, and purchase a 242D border.
