Diamond Stars

Hi Quilters! I saw a picture of a quilt sort of like this online, Pinterest or somewhere. It was one row wider and had blue background blocks on all the corners with 5 point stars applique in white fabric. It also had no border. I needed mine a size of about 60x80. Another row would have put me way over, so I opted for smaller borders. With 3 stars across I also decided it wouldn’t look good with the blue corner blocks and 1 Star block, on top and bottom. So this is my version. I think if I make it again I’ll start with smaller Star blocks. Do you think it set on point? It’s not! I thought it was and wondered how they got their blue square corner blocks set in. I made a 12 inch Sawtooth Star then treated it like the center square, in a square block!-lol It made 17 1/2 blocks set straight. It does look like Star blocks and hourglass or quarter square triangles, don’t you think? Did it fool you? It did me too at first. I just had to figure it out-lol This ended up about 63 x 81. It will of course, go with the others for our men and women veterans who deserve so much. Have a nice weekend- Toogie
