Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!
In keeping with our May theme, today’s pattern was created especially to make quilts for The Linus Connection.
Stars for Linus is a personal project I created in 2011 during a wildfire crisis here in Central Texas. We were in great need of extra blankets to help the affected children, many of whom were made homeless. I put a call out to my online quilting friends to make this simple paper pieced star with sashing.
We were able to create several quilts made from blocks that had been sent from all over the world!
I’ve continued to collect Stars For Linus ever since, expanding the project to accept ANY 12″ star block contributors might like to make. Find out more here.
All quilts made from these blocks are finished by myself or another Linus volunteer and goes to a child in crisis in Central Texas.

Below are just a few of the quilts made from your donated 12″ Star blocks over the years. As the years have gone by, I’ve incorporated more star variety and occasionally even a random orphan block!
All finished quilts were donated through The Linus Connection to children who needed them.
