    danmar, you quilt colors & layout are fantastic. What color will your border be? I'm a tad afraid of stars, but folks like you make them look easy. I promise I'll try at least one star before long. Are you in the Doll Quilt Swap for March. It's a lots of fun & we're assigned a partner to make a small quilt for. Lot of chatting back & forth & good way to get to know our partners, as well as other board members. TTUL..............

    I took a picture of the border material. Thank you for the compliments. These stars are all made out of half squares and are very easy to do. I'll take a close up picture of the star and post it. I'm sure that you would be able to do them. I'll PM you.

    Oops! I lied! I'm sorry! I was thinking of a different quilt that I made when I said that the stars were made out of half squares.
    This one has Flying Geese and half squares. I took a picture of it and one of the half square blocks. (The half square one is easier to do, I think.) Here's the Pictures.

    I saw this pattern in a magazine but I didn't like their pattern. The pattern was for a 14" block, (too big!), and it was more of an applique pattern. You just cut the 8 points out in one piece each, and then used spray adhesive to glue them to a 14 1/2" square of white material, then zig zagged around them. I decided to just make my own regular 8 point star blocks, in a nice 9" block. Then I adjusted the Square-in-a-Square block to a 9" block too, and TA-DA! I have the quilt I wanted out of their idea.

    Great job! I enjoy seeing the way your blocks have a 1/4 inch leeway for the seams so you don't lose your points. No matter what I do, I never seem to see that in my blocks!
