Stretched Stars

stretched stars
April 2017
Stretched Stars began with squares from the 5 inch scrap bin. I added triangles to diagonal corners to create the blocks for this quilt.

The finished blocks went to Denver with me, and at Marilyn's house, I sewed the blocks into rows and added the first border (frame). The final border was added when I got home.

  1. Interesting how I could see the obvious square with the corners in the close up photo. But stepping back to see the whole quilt, those squares all appeared tilted. An optical illusion. Very nice!!

  7. It certainly is a great design, and I can see lots of lovely fabrics. I presume you did the flip corner technique?
