Jeannie Denson sent me an email last week with a photo of a beautiful split star quilt that she was making for a Quilts of Valor project. She used the Split Star instructions here for the star blocks and added a half square triangle block as a connecting block. The connector blocks make the stars stand out even more.
This is the first quilt she made, but the QOV foundation has strict requirements for size and this was a little too small. The quilting on this one looks like stars and stripes.
Jeannie got busy and made a second split star quilt that was bigger. She did a marathon stitching session and finished the top in two days. And it is on her quilting machine already. The pattern in the fabrics in this one give it an extra sparkle don’t they?
