Star in a Star

Wow this weekend went fast. Here is the star in a star
quilt I've been working on.
The small blocks look like
1/4 of the quilt.


It used up lots of scraps.
There are 12 rows of 12 variable
star blocks. The blocks are 10".


The dark and light
blocks make 4
large stars. The quilt
is backed
and batted and basted. Hopefully
I will start quilting it this fall
after I finish some other projects.
I hope it's going to be happy in
the cedar chest till then.

What a beautiful quilt! A lot of work in it, but it turned out just lovely!

cool idea, I tried something like that but I was "less than successful."

I am going to tackle that 1/4 square triangle unit soon... Wish me luck!

Ohhh, pretty! Those stars are so very subtle - makes you look 2X to find them - they type of quilt that draws you in for a closer look. It is great.

Cheers!
