Thinking Big: Supersized Stars

I try to feature Windham Fabrics on Wednesdays and today I'd like to go back to the future. My book, Supersize 'Em Quilts, features a fantastic ROTARY cut LeMoyne Star quilt with variations on the star block. This uses a beautiful collection of fabrics from years gone by, but I'm sure you can find a variety of fabrics in your stash that would work with such an easy to piece quilt. The "easy-ness" has to do with NO templates and ONLY rotary cut diamonds. What? Rotary cut diamonds? Impossible. Not so.
Texas Stars - 20" block!!
Can you see the 3 different blocks?
1. A simple LeMoyne Star with 8 diamonds
2. A LeMoyne Star with a single diamond and a 4 Patch diamond
3. A LeMoyne Star with 4 Patch diamonds in all 8 of the units
Three different LeMoyne Stars
Don't you just love it? Why do you think you have those 45 degree angle lines on your acrylic rulers? To help you rotary cut these strips. Check out my web site to see the special price on this book. And you can see a slide show of ALL the quilts - all 22 of them, by clicking on that link. Next time, another quilt, another group of fabrics. All these fabrics, all these quilts, so little time. Pick your favorites and GO SEW!
