Rose Star Week: Day Two
Here is another variation on that simple Rose Star Table Topper. Same shape but I added some side setting triangles to really upsize it. I blogged about this last year. I was using the Harvest Gold fabric collection by Benartex. Here's the link for the post from May 2019. (Fabric giveaway is over)

If you visit that page link you will see a LOT of steps in how I constructed this Rose Star. Same method as yesterday's but I added setting triangles on the sides to "square it up" and then beautiful borders. Here is the top (before quilting). I used the same template and method as patterned in my hard copy pattern (with template and 3-fabric patch samples). And the digital link is here.

And I quilted it last week using my Handi Quilter Sweet 16. Notice that I turned it 90 degrees because I wanted it to be longer than wide. Here it is:

Just in time to hang in my house for the Fall. Love these fabrics! I also made this same pattern using a collection by Windham. (You know - they send me free fabrics and I design with them. Not considered a pattern for them - for pay - so I make what I want!)

Come back tomorrow to see some other things I made using the kite shape. Thanks for stopping by and any kind words you share about these quilts I always pass on to them. It makes them feel so special!
