    This is from a pattern called No Diamonds In The Sky. It's all done with HSTs which was perfect for me because diamonds just never go right when I try them.

    The fabric is by Judie Rothermel called Indigo, Pewter, and Honey. It's for a man so I chose something that wasn't flowery.

    Really nice!!! I am going to tackle a mariner's compass or Star of Bethlehem, or whatever you choose to call it. I think I'll find this pattern, because it sure looks easier than even the strip piecing method for diamonds.

    It was fairly easy to make. I cut all the fabric according to the pattern, stacked by fabric, and went to town sewing the number of each combination required.

    I "cheat" a little because I do not trust the HSTs to be exactly the size they're supposed to be. If I need a 3 1/2" square then the squares that I start out with need to be 7/8" larger. Well, I used 5" squares, sewed them both sides of the middle, cut them apart and pressed. I then squared up each HST to 3 1/2". It went together just about perfectly that way.
