New Quilt Pattern

Here is my latest quilt e-pattern. Give a simple quilt block a touch of magic—the add-a-strip way! Slice a triangle block and then piece in a 1˝ strip of contrasting fabric to create a quick block design. This has a triangle base layout, and there is only one block style to piece.
Here is the link to order Scratch Art e-pattern. Scroll to the bottom of the page.

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 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.
