I've been working slowly and surely on my oh my stars! quilt. My husband thinks this would make a good king size quilt. I totally agree, but I'm not sure my arms can handle it. :) For now I'm just taking it one row at a time and I'll see where it goes.
I sure do love it so far! The way the white fabric pops just makes me smile.
The specifics of the quilt can be found in this post.
That looks amazing. A lot of work!
Gorgeous! I just love it.
It would be beautiful as a King size quilt. It is beautiful now! Thank you for sharing your progress. It is fun to watch it come together. :)
Very cute! I hope to attempt one of these some day :)
Maybe your husband can sew a few blocks. Maybe then he would downgrade on size ;)
I love love love love it. Beautiful!
I am loving it too. I hope to do my own one day. I love your get-up-and-go!
Wow, I think about doing something like this but always chicken out. It is amazing!!!
So beautiful!!! Love it!
It is looking lovely - I think it will make a beautiful quilt of whatever size you want to make.
It's so beautiful already (but I feel for your arms!)
It's looking great! King-sized sounds ambitious but go for it (if you don't get fed up before then!!)
I so do not need another hand project... but this is so cool!!! How big are the diamonds you are using????
It really looks lovely!
I am "almost" finished with my king sized hexagon quilt. Almost meaning only a month or two? :) I might have to make a star quilt next. Yours is beautiful!
I have not started the 36 patch quilt, but I have to say that I love how it is coming along. It is going to be so fun and cheery!
I LOVE this!!! Such happy colors. Look forward to following its progress. :)
Wow!!! I've never seen quilt like this before! It's fantastic!!!
You started this in April and you have all these stars finished?
This is not slow!
Enjoy the process and allow it to go on for when you need some hand work...it will be a lovely family heirloom too.
It is just beautiful.
This is so cool!! How are you doing it? English paper piecing or just hand piecing??
Don't you love it when hubby's get interested in the hand projects and want huge versions?!? I remember when I finished my Civil War Bride quilt, my husband commented that it wasn't big enough for the bed...like I was going to let him actually sleep under it or something! LOL
Looking good! Keep it up - you never know how big it will get. Here's mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wadewoolley/5738259018/in/pool-1535555@N21
keep going and you won't regret it!It is so cute!!
King size?! Wow. It is beautiful!
I have this pattern for a crochet afghan, it turned out so pretty, your's is beautiful too!
How I LOVE these stars! Looks like a lot of work. I'm thinking table runner sized for me.....maybe this winter.
This is beautiful! I have an old star hand-pieced UFO I should get out. I wish I had thought of paper piecing at the time. That is very clever! :) Are you going for a quilt with no duplicates?
Not sure how big your stars are?
You mat get a bit fed up sewing a kingsize.
I made mine quite big and ended up with a double, and I was thankful when I finished!
It look fabulous. It makes me want to make one as my next handwork project. How do I start? LOL (This from a woman who has 2 huge mega handwork projects in a very unfinished state!!)
absolutely gorgeous. I am completely in love!
love that quilt! good job on your progress!
Great progress. It's going to be beautiful. Funny that Kevin thinks king-sized would be a nice idea. Easy for HIM to say, right?
I LOVE it! It would make a beautiful king size quilt...but that would be a LOT of work!
My mom and my grandma both made star quilts just like this one around 20 years ago and they gave me the extra pieces! (They cut all the pieces using a template.) This has got me thinking about pulling out those old diamond scraps. Thanks so much for your post. I'm inspired.
Amazing. You are so hardcore!
I love it!! I would love to have one of these one day. Yours looks so great.
now that is beautiful!!! :) i love it!
Just wow! Now I know what my next hand pieced quilt will be, if I ever finish my tumbling blocks quilt!
E-gads, talk about commitment!
Wow!! Very beautiful! I think your husband is right. And I deffinantly think it will be worth all the work you are putting into it! Amazing!
Oh this is every a quilt should be. I just love it.
That is truly lovely. I've done paper piecing before (it's how I got into quilting) but not just hand piecing. However that is about to change as I'm cutting out my first to-be hand pieced project - the dresden quilt from Material Obsession 2. With spring coming, I think it will be the perfect project to drag about the place. Also I notice my love for little pieces is growing!
Love It! Maybe I'll attempt this one after I finish my Grandma's Flower Garden!
It's absolutely beautiful! It would be a beautiful king quilt!
i love how it's coming along! i have been piecing hexagons and boy, are my fingers sore.. this is definitely a long-term project..
I love the white fabric pops too! You are doing a great job!
I like it a LOT!
all I can say is WOW! Good for you - tis beautiful!
That is going to be the coolest quilt! Love it.
love it. Each time you post about this quilt I tell myself I'm going to make one. You're an inspiration
Such a bright and happy quilt. You will love it regardless of how big it is!
You are one very patiient lady...well worth it though...so pretty! Smiles~Beth
I'll ditto the WOW!s above -- simply beautiful.
Oh my gosh, this is so cute!
Your star project is much farther along that I realized. It looks fabulous! I can't imagine this in a King size, but if anyone can do it, YOU can! It will be stunning no matter what size you decide.
I've been making mine since early may and it will be a queen...I'm a little over half way done and I have to be careful as my hands start yo hurt so easy does it...you don't have to finish it this year!
just beautiful! so intricate, must be a time consuming project! can't wait to see the whole process!
Your star quilt top is looking fantastic. love the fabrics.
This is going to be amazing when it's done!! Heck, it is amazing now : ) Can't wait to see the finished product.
I really enjoy seeing ALL the projects you work on, but I have to say, this one really tops my list of favorites. I hope you will continue to show glimpses of the progress! Looks great!
I forgot you were doing this! It is beautiful. And Inspiring. Thanks!
It's great and happy quilt. Love the colorful statement.
I'm just finishing off a star quilt as well... but mine didn't make it to a kings size. My patience was put to a test as it was already ;)
Love it! You are sewing a lot faster than I. :-)
Wow! Did I miss the tutorial on how to make these? I love hand sewing and this looks to be right up that alley.
Gorgeous, I love it!
Gorgeous! I'd like to try this myself!
I love your stars and the white diamonds give the stars some breathing room in the design. Great work!
It is coming along quite nicely! Keep it up!
Will you please stop posting these amazing quilts -- you're killing me here! I can't keep up with what I have started -- Gah!!!
I LOVE LOVE these stars! If I ever get my yoyos done, I'm so torn whether to go with hexagons or stars. Oh, the torture!!!
You have inspired me. I started cutting out my diamonds last night so I can make one too.
I *love* this...might have to be my next project!
I sure like it but I would not recommend a king size quilt for so much handwork.
Jessica would be so proud! Heck, I'm so proud!!! Look at those stars go and grow!
Thanks for showing your progress! I have a king size project going that I'm doing in spurts and this is giving me hope! No matter what size, your quilt will be awesome!
I have an Irish chain I'm hand sewing that one day will be a king sized quilt one day...http://www.flickr.com/photos/50596757@N06/5580141496/in/photostream
WOW, they're beautiful!
It is awesome!!
Keep going, they look wonderful!
That is going to be breathtaking when it's finished!
Hubby wants a king-sized quilt? Put that man to work!
Looks amazing! WOW - that's a LOT of fussy work! I've never designed a quilt or anything before, but I can't help look at this close-up and wonder if the same effect can be achieved in strip quilting fashion where each row of stars is made from 4 strips..row 1: white diamonds & colored triangles, row 2 : white triangles & colored trapezoids, row 3: white triangles & colored trapezoids in opposing direction, row 4 : white diamonds & colored triangles again. It would be a lot of lining up and accurate cutting, but seems like it wouldn't be any more fussy than this method... just wondering...
Either way, BEAUTIFUL!!!
Urrgh! Now I want to start one of these, too. I gotta stop following your blog! I can see it would be nice for something to do in the car on long trips. A lot more productive than reading a book... or sleeping, I think I might cut up some 50 cent plastic folders and go to it. Thanks for all the great ideas.
Wow this is super pretty. I just love it!
Oh my stars is right! It's super cool and - AS ALWAYS - I love your color choices and the way you combine them.
Gorgeous... love all the color! Are you hand piecing this? I would imagine that would be the only way to put it together, right? anyway, I have been dreaming of making a scrappy quilt with lots of colors and using white as the background to make it POP... I love this!!!
ok... just answered my own question. I clicked on the specifics of this quilt "post" and saw the answer. Love it!
I'm working on one too. Can you show us the back? I have all sorts of tails and not exactly sure how to trim. It's way too bulky as it is. I've run out of quilt patis so I'm forced to sew my stars together. I'm LOVING it! Thanks for the link to the YouTube video AND especially for the inspiration. I'll have to send you a pic when a get a few more of these little beauties sewn together.
I love this method .LIke "jardin de grand mère"(grand'ma's garden ??)but look more modern !
What is the size of the templates ? And where can I buy it please ?
I'm french , and in France, I have only the size 3.8 cm for the side of the losange.
I've bought the book "fresh fabrics treats "and I LOVE your stars !!!But
it's very difficult to find turnovers, I'll cut my fabrics ...
Thank you for your blog !!
I went to USA , and at Cannon Beach, in the lovely quilt fabrics shop, the sellers knew your blog and love it too.
Excuse me for my english !!
Oh good grief I love it-but what a lot of work!!
It is wonderful to sharing with us these type of information. I am also planning to make it for my sister on her birtday gift. The colour selection is perfect.
I can certainly understand your husband wanting this to be a king size quilt. It's beautiful!
This is stunning!! This is going to be added to my "someday" list.
Maybe hubby could learn how to do this quilt and help you. :o)
I think your husband might hate you...those pieces look tiny! :)
Maybe it could be a throw to sit on the end of a different king-sized quilt?
Wow that is awesome! I think maybe your husband would like to help, that way it will get bigger faster? lol
this is so beautiful that it makes my heart ache to look at it. ::sigh::
it really is so dreamy....
OMG! I want to have a quilt like this! Maybe I should try with equilateral triangles and use my sewing machine?
Je quilte les" seven sisters" en ce moment:-)
This is so beautiful. It'll be stunning as a bed sized quilt!
I'm doing the hexagon flower one... I've got enough for a table runner... should I stop there?! Your stars look great!
Those are so amazing! I just love what you have done so far!
Oh, yeah. It's spectacular. It looks like a lot of fun!
I have just started my foray into paper piecing with a hexagon project (it's actually going to be part hexagons, part strips, so we'll see how I can manage that... my own designs are often more ambitious than my abilities!) and I really enjoy it. I think I am going to work on a star design made of triangles like this one next, because yours is turning out really pretty.
