Does it surprise anyone who reads my blog that I bought another antique top from eBay?
I could just not pass it up even though it was only partially finished.
I have been looking at string pieced quilts a lot since I purchased some string star blocks in CO. I was also inspired by the work Kate at empty field has done on string stars. And then Barbara Brackman had a post about string pieced quilts in a similar pattern on her blog. So when I saw this top I knew I had to have it.
Here is one block
Isn’t it interesting how the 60 degree diamonds made into a star can create hexagons when they are put together
there are some great fabrics
the blocks are all foundation pieced by machine
I will need to do some taking apart and re-assembly in order to square it up
I think it will make a beautiful quilt! Here is a similar quilt from the quilt index
So there is now another project added to the growing pile of “some day quilts”
