A big Thank You to Sue Edberg for her beautiful quilts. I left her post up for a few extra days because her quilts are just so beautiful.
How is everybody doing with their QOV projects? I’d love to hear progress and even see some pictures. I’ll show pictures of my progress tomorrow.
And I’ve been thinking about what to do next for star blocks that are simple, but different. I played around a bit in EQ7 and came up with this variation on the Ohio Star. It is inspired by the 54-40 Fight Block which has four patches on all four corners.
To make a 12 inch block, each finished four patch unit would measure 4 inches. The star points are four inch finished quarter square triangle units, and the center square is a 4 inch square. It really is pretty simple when you put it together with simple sashing and cornerstones. And the four patch blocks create a very pretty secondary pattern within this quilt.
