    The whole quilt measures about 72" x 72" give or take an inch or two...lol
    anyway, the star blocks are made from 15" blocks cut in half and sewed together...and you just go from there....real simple project...really cute...glad you like it....

    thanks, Im glad you like it...it is about 72" x 72" inches. I think I answerd you earlier.....each square is made from half squares that are cut from a 15" square, then sewd together and then placed to form the diamond. and then you have a big star quilt...... :!:

    Sure can...after picking out the colors you want for the star and main color measure and cut half squares from all. I made my 1/2 squareas from a 15" square... make sure you have enough main color for the 4 corners....after you sew yur 1/2 squares together and measure how big they are, then that is the size of the 4 corners...then put it all together and a boarder if you like and finish the quilt...I tyed mind....
    I hope that helps..if you need me to help anymore just send me a note...
    :P :wink:
