  2. I am exhausted but glad that

    I put 41 bales of pine needles around the house, as mulch in NC. Tomorrow I will get packed to go with a friend to the Caymans. In the meantime my best quilting buddy & GD are coming for a few days while her flooring is being out in. Hope to play cards, laugh alot and eat bad things that hubby cooks.

    I would really like to try to make one like this, if you don't mind. Your work is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing. BrendaK
    It was called Amish star, I found it in a magazine. They suggested it be done in multi colors of scraps. My vision was a little different.

    The formula for this method: (Finished size of HST x 2) + 2 (1 7/8 if you're perfect). For instance, for 2" hst cut (2 x 2)+2 =6" squares of both fabrics right sides facing. Draw lines as Suzy says, connecting sided at center marks, then draw diagonals from top to bottom, both corners making a big X. Sew 1/4 on each side of diagonals ONLY, not the cross connecting the side centers, CUT along ALL lines(center and diagonal. Makes 8 , trim to unfinished 2 1/2"[/QUOTE]
