The universal symbol, the star, is probably the single most popular design chosen by quilters. There are 14 different designs known as Star of Bethlehem and 4 versions with different values of the one design shown above. This pattern has 3 different names too - Star of the Magi and Star of Jerusalem - which are certainly appropriate.
Quilting experience is assumed for this New Testament block as there are no specific directions. I suggest you use the templates if you are making a sampler quilt. If you are making a full quilt with this pattern you can use the rotary cutting PDF as a guide but some are not complete.
If you are new to quilting I recommend the Old Testament blocks.STAR OF BETHLEHEM ROTARY CUTTING PDF
