A pattern by Jen Gardner
Jen’s new Maxie Star Quilt is a delightful 6 pointed star meets tumbling blocks design, perfect to showcase your beautiful Liberty fabrics. This English Paper Piecing pattern uses a clever layout of solid colour diamonds in between your Liberty stars to form large colourful hexagons, which then intersect to create tumbling blocks across the design. A simple yet playful design, this is a relatively quick project that makes the perfect gift for a baby or child.
Pattern booklet includes plenty of step by step instructions and tips for creating your blocks and laying them out them to recreate this delightful effect. Suitable for beginners and experts alike – you can watch our English Paper Piecing tutorials here.

+ We tear our Liberty to achieve a line that follows the grain of the fabric - fabric edges may reflect this process.
+ Colour accuracy - When selecting fabrics please be aware that although we have scanned and colour corrected fabric images, every screen shows colours differently. If you are not sure, we recommend purchasing a sample card or minimum cut to ensure the fabric is what you expect. Linen sample cards can be found here. Liberty Solid fabric sample cards can be found here and patterned Liberty Tana Lawn is available in small cuts of 25cm.
