This is ONE. very. pretty. star...
if I do say so myself!
The starry points are fairly easy to construct.
The Y seams...
NOT so much.
Looks like I need some
I used 2" strips.
You can use any width.
Use the 45degree line on your ruler.
Line it up with the seam.
Cut a 2" section off.
IF you are using 2 1/2", 3" etc. wide strips..
THAT's the measurement you'll cut here.
Make 8 of these....
8 of these!!!
These are your STARRY points!
Add some white in all the corners.
If I make a whole bunch of these..
I'll have a very pretty quilt.
Maybe I'll conquer that
You are right....it is a very beautiful star. And it will make a striking quilt. HugsReplyDelete
I don't know - yours look pretty darned good! You haven't much to conquer. Very pretty.....ReplyDelete
Practice makes perfect so they say.....great colors and design.ReplyDelete
Yes you will have that Y-seam nailed by the end of this quilt.
And it will be a another beauty :0)
That is a pretty star!ReplyDelete
I love the floating points. A very pretty star!ReplyDelete
so pretty, I will try this and see if my points are as nice as yours.ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing
Pretty, Beth! And congratulations on your nomination over at Amy's!!ReplyDelete
So pretty! But I'll be honest - y seams make me shudder! Not sure I'm brave enough to tackle those!ReplyDelete
Wow, you're right! This is a very pretty star! I'm wondering what size your block is? I learned how to do the Y seams many years ago when it was hand pieced, not sure how they'd go on the machine.ReplyDelete
In the red, green and white it would make a lovely Christmas quilt... looks like a sylized "point" settia.ReplyDelete
Mark your 1/4" intersection, that'll help. (I haven't made many Ys, but that helped with the few.)
I love your star block...that would be a great way to practice Y seams...hmmmm...ReplyDelete
