Are you ready to dive into the world of 60 degree quilting designs? Our Star 60™ tool brings the same concept of oversizing and trimming down into the realm of 60 degree shapes. We begin with a basic Star 60 unit, containing a diamond and two small triangles in 17 different size options, and then team this unit up with a multitude of additional shapes to create an array of amazing 60 degree quilt projects.
Of course, you will find all the same benefits you have come to expect from every Studio 180 Design tool. There are multiple size options, oversizing and trim down for better accuracy, fine lines for higher precision, right and left hand instructions, free videos, supporting patterns, incredible design options, ease of use with other patterns, and an increased success rate for every level quilt maker.
The Hollow Cube 60 technique sheet is a great companion for your Star 60 tool!

Our Quad 60 Technique Sheet, a companion for the Star 60 tool, will add a fun new triangular unit to your bag of 60° piecework tricks!

Starting with an oversized strip piecing technique, followed by trim down steps using the Star 60 tool, you’ll be amazed at how quickly these units come together.
