    My Star

    I took a class a couple weekends ago because I wanted to be able to make those beautiful star quilts people show. It cost me $35.00 and included the cut triangles, which was enough for the star and some left over. It came out a lot better than I thought it would, because lining all that up is a PITA. LOL!!

    Now I get to figure out how to make it block it, without making a mess. Any ideas? I know it may end up being Y seams, which will probably pucker it all.

    Right now each star tip is just pinned and it measures about 63 inches, star tip to star tip.

    Very pretty! It's been 20+ years sine I've done a lone star and would love to do another. I found this tutorial that looks to be pretty straight forward. Please post when you are finished! Oh, and don't forget to starch the triangles before you add them. It might save you a bit of misery!

    maybe try sewing three together twice and then joining them on a straight line; that way you just need to line up the center point and no y-seams. Just a suggestion? Very nice colors.
