Make a Meditative Quilt Star

An easy holiday paper ornament.

Need a lovely handmade gift for someone special? This Origami Quilt Star is a double gift.

In making it you will be giving yourself some time of peaceful meditation and joy, and also end up with something you can give as a meaningful present: an ornament made with your own hands. 

I named this model ‘Quilt Star’ because it looks like a traditional quilting block called Star Flower. It is a close cousin of the Star of Gratitude, previously shown on Origami Spirit.

Tips and suggestions for making the origami Quilt Star

  • In the videos the star is demonstrated using very thin paper called Kami.
  • To make the basic star use two squares of paper sized 6 × 6-inch (15 × 15cm) for the center units and two equal squares of contrasting color for the points.
  • The finished central part of the star shows both sides of the paper. For best effect it’s best to use paper of different color on each side.
  • If you are just beginning your adventure in the art of paper folding, you might want to make a few stars using flat color paper, and then go ahead and use patterned paper.
  • Make a collection of stars, featuring pictures of your family and loved ones in the central frame. Hang them on the Christmas tree.
  • For the central pieces, use beautiful mandala papers available here as Instant Download
  • For more ideas on what to use as central inserts, click HERE and take a look to this blog post on the Gratitude Star.
