Classic and Vintage Series: Postage Stamp Star - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Classic and Vintage Series: Postage Stamp Star

We’re back with another pattern in our Classic & Vintage series, the Postage Stamp Star Quilt Block!  In our Classic & Vintage series, we focus on traditional quilt blocks and add a modern twist! The Postage Stamp Star is made of little squares that remind us of postage stamps, arranged so that they fade into the background at the edges. The cool thing is, they’re made from Jelly Rolls, so it’s quick to sew.

The Postage Stamp Star quilt block is available as a free download. You can use it in projects large and small, from quilts to table runners. The block finishes at 18″, which makes it perfect to frame or turn into a pillow case.  Kimberly got back to basics on the Postage Stamp Star with a White Bella Solids Jelly Roll and a Christmas Red Bella Solids Junior Jelly Roll.

Our complete Postage Stamp Star quilt pattern with four quilt size options is available for purchase at To make a quilt just like ours, we have the Postage Stamp Star Quilt Kit available!

If you’re ready to sew along with us, download your FREE Postage Stamp Star block pattern and watch Kimberly’s video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on making your block! Kimberly shows you how to make accurate strip sets from Jelly Rolls, making this quilt block a cinch.
