Hexagon star test block

hexagon star

I’ve never made a star quilt – but I’ve always liked them – I even have a “Star Quilts” board on Pinterest.

When Linda (of Inklingo fame) recently released a new collection of star points as an add-on to the hexagon collections I just had to try it.

It’s exactly like sewing a hexagon flower – and I LOVE hexagons! Adding the diamonds is a breeze – continuous stitching – I only used two threads.

I’d like to make 42 – six across and seven down. With a narrow inner border and a wider outer border it will be a nice medium size.

When am I going to do this – who knows? I have so many projects going at once. So into the sample block drawer it goes. Along with my Winding Ways and the Clamshell Pickle and the New York Beauty.

  1. You haven’t posted for a while, I do hope all is well. I don’t usually like Union Jack quilts but yours makes me want to make one. Your colours are always wonderful and the quilting stunning.
    I do some quilting (usually on papers) but my real love is embroidery. if you have time, I’d love you to have a look at my blog http://www.addisonembroideryatthevicarage.co.uk.
