    Diamonds and Stars

    My husband designed this and pieced it, I did the quilting! We are pretty happy with it. It is 82" x 90".

    If anyone has seen this pattern please let us know, we have looked but not found it!

    Thanks for looking!

    I likey! I likey!!

    As for the pattern ... it looks like 1/2 of a lone star with HST's in the corner to finish it into a square. Except he didn't use HST's - he cut the corner as a whole piece.

    Nifty pattern!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I believe the block is (at least sometimes) called 4 point stars. Some examples -

    Your quilt is beautiful.

    That is a striking quilt with great quilting. I call it "Fabulous!"
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    It's a great quilt and the quilting is super. It looks familiar so it is probably out there somewhere. It looks almost like the Spiderweb blocks I am working on.

    Lovely ... especially because of the fabric used for the stars, as it really gives motion and lets those stars twinkle away.

    Would you please show us a piece of it before it got all cut up?
