Default Oder than dirt star quilt

Another quilt made by my mom back at least in the 70's. In those days they cut out each piece that was used to make the star. Then sewing them back together, you can only imagine how it could grow and stretch because of the bias cuts! Well, after much thought, I stippled the star and did a grid on the outer plaid sections. I think the plaid was once a sheet! With all the great colors on the front, we had a bit of fun with the purple polka dots on the backing. Gotta love the fact that they used any and all fabric they had back in the day! Fun times and another memory we can smile about! Thanks MOM,

I remember my Mother using this pattern for quilts. She made all 10 of her kids one. As you said, the diamonds was cut maybe 2 or 3 layers at a time.
