    More practice with half square triangles! I saw this on Friday's episode of "Simply Quilts." I cut the strips an inch less than they should have been, so I had to adjust things... :oops: Next time, I'll pay better attention!

    Chele,
    I'm very impressed. That's something I've looked at and been afraid to do. Your colors are wonderful as always! We really must go shopping together someday!!! :lol: I'll buy everything you buy!

    You go, girl!

    Nice job! Are you going to add more borders to it, or is it a table topper?

    I love how you just whip something together once you have seen it. No stalling.

    Thanks everyone! :oops: Mine turned out 26" x 26", but if you cut the strips the right size, it finishes out to 40" x 40"!

    I think I'll use this to practice machine quilting. Then it can be a wallhanging or table topper. Or, I could add some more borders! :?

    Chele--on the directions--under "sorting squares and making combinations" it pairs up same pieces together. It reads "two of each of the following: 3 + 3, 4 + 4...."

    How can that be?

    Help me. :wink:

    That kind of confused me too! But, yes, you piece those together as well! I guess to get the whole diamond effect. You could use a single square, but I really stink at figuring out measurements like that! LOL!

    Well, upon closer inspection (the info is so small!!) I do see where there are blocks of the same color. Tsk--such a strange way to spend my time cutting apart fabric only to sew it back together, well the same color anyways!. :roll: But I bet you're right--it contributes to the effect.

    Interesting coincidence, I was just watching the very program earlier today and was wondering if the procedure was as easy as she claimed it was? What do you think?

    It was a very easy pattern, and I'm a beginner. I want to try it actual size and I bet I could get more of those points to line up! Try it, you'll like it! :D

    I watched the show too. After seeing yours it is definitely on my list for the near future. I'm wondering if the star could be extended out beyond 5 fabrics without losing the effect of the pattern. Hmmmm. I guess it's time to get out the colored pencils and grid paper.
