Throughout 2014 I was following Temecula Quilt Co's posts Fussy Cut Fridays & just loved the variety of stars being produced. Being a huge fan of EPP I finally succumbed in September & started making stars from my stash of Civil War reproduction fabrics.I also loved the setting they used & decided to follow the same pattern for joining my stars together. You only need two shapes for this pattern, 2inch 60 degree diamonds & 4inch hexagons. (measurements taken on the side of the shape)
Here's a few of my favorites so far:
I'm loving how this top is all coming together & already looking forward to hand quilting it when it's done.So far all the stars are different & I've now exhausted my own repro stash, so, in order to have more variety I have purchased the odd 1800 remnant bag or two from Homestead Hearth. These bags are such good value & full of decent size scraps in a great mixture of fabrics which are perfect for making these stars.
The top is gradually growing to a decent size, hoping to make this large enough with a good drape for a double bed.
