This is the last day of the Quilt Hop. If you have not entered a chance to win Diamond Star Quilts book you may want to do that before the Quit Hop is over. To win a chance for a copy of the book on my blog leave a commit below. The drawing will be on October 10. For a few more insights in the book. The quilt Rotating Stars is made from the same large diamonds even though the two stars look so different. Rotate the large diamonds 180 degrees and tada...you get a different star.
If you are just interested in making a small quilt of this pattern see my e-pattern Sand Dollar.
By rotating the diamonds the cactus looking feathers are now on the outside of the large diamond instead of the inside of the diamond.
This pattern in the book is a great project for a child. Two of my grandchildren, Asher and Brighton made these two star quilts.
Thanks to all the Quilt Hops who give everyone a sneak peek inside my book. To enter a chance to win Diamond Star Quilts book leave a comment below.

  8. Wow, just wow! I've always thought these quilts were too difficult for me to make, and then I saw the photo of your (very young) grandchildren with ones they made. Okay, I guess I might be able to! Your quilts are stunning. I particularly like the first one pictured. It floats! Are you, by chance, related to Julia Graber? In the family (sisters and nieces) photo C&T used on their post, I though I recognized her. She's long been a favorite of mine. You're a new favorite! :)

  9. Wow your patterns are gorgeous! I, as others have mentioned, have never made a star quilt before. I'm impressed your young grandchildren can make star quilts too! I also love the quilting on each of the quilts; the designs enhance the patchwork of each quilt.

  25. I would love a chance to win this book; I have three baby quilts to make and I think making three star quilts would be a great diversion right about now. Thanks for the chance and for sharing your lovely quilt with us.
