Celestial Quilting

Celestial Quilting

Begin by drafting simple stars, some constructed with squares and triangles, some with parallelograms, and finish with the “queen of stars”, the eight-pointed LeMoyne Star, all made with 9” blocks. You can make as many stars as you desire, each different or make a larger piece with repeat patterns. The sample shown is a 30” x 45” wallhanging, with built-in pieced star sashing.
