Ever hear that saying, "I'll sleep on it"? That's because sometimes the mind figures things out during the sleeping process. Mid-sleep I began thinking about my never-ending quilt and thought of exchanging the ecru and putting in red . Went upstairs, pulled out the ecru fabric and with red. Ah ha! That's it.
Interestingly enough when I came downstairs after taking that photo I re-checked my email and had a message from Denise suggesting I repeat the sashing from the center, which was blue and red. Seems my brain was a little slow on the uptake.
Below are the pattern pieces I used to cut the star quilt. To make the star blocks I drew out the star on paper the size I wanted, cut out each of the sections then traced them onto sheets of paper adding 1/4" seam allowance. Did the same for the central large star on a larger piece of paper, which you see to the left of the scissors.
Also made this Cabin quilt (spread) from a pattern which could be on my book shelf in the sewing room still.
