A star pattern is a decorative design of diamond and triangular shaped pieces of coloured fabric sewn together for a quilt. The pattern may be a large, single star with radiating diamonds or triangles, or multiple stars joined together.

It was a popular quilt pattern throughout England and North America at the beginning of the nineteenth century and there are many variations, such as Broken Star, Feathered Star, Mathematical Star, Sawtooth Star and Star of Bethlehem. This complex pattern remains popular among quilters into the twenty-first century.
