Rose Star Week: Day 7

 I'm back but only with the kite shaped patches and not a Rose Star block. But I think you'll like what I discovered. I pulled out some samples from my Rose Star workshop box and found these little pieced patches. I don't even remember what inspired me to stitch these, but I also discovered that I only had 4 kite units (and not 6).

I took them apart and made some with other fabrics. As you can see, I was using my own Kite template. My strips are cut 2-1/4" - 2" - 2-1/4" (that equals 5-1/2" unfinished). Pressed seams in ONE direction. They will nestle when joined with their neighbors.

Here is my Pieced Kite Hexagon (one half first). What do you think?

And the whole hexagon made of pieced kites.

Hexagon made using pieced kite shapes (9" high as shown)

I decided to upsize it using the Creative Grids Kite Plus ruler.

Cutting with the full size using the CG ruler

Flip-flop the ruler to get the next cut.

Second cut

Here is my much larger block using those pieced kites. I will square it up on the sides, but for now, this is a 14-1/2" high hexagon block.

I still have ideas for these kite units. Hope you enjoyed Rose Star week. I have sold out of my hard copy patterns with acrylic template (actually, I have one left as of this morning). But I still sell the digital pdf with all the directions for the Rose Star and the paper template.

Maybe you have the Kites Plus ruler by Creative Grids. If so, I hope you got some ideas here.


  1. Got my kite yesterday. I hope to try next week after finishing binding on a quilt. My kids live in Bristow, not too far from you. Love the hexagon block. So many ideas.

    1. I actually lived in Bristow for 2 years (2008-10). So, I know it well. I hope you saw a lot of possibilities this Rose Star week. I'm still designing with that little template and I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Yes, these fabrics are an older collection from Windham: Kashmir. 2016, but the colors (to me) are timeless. The designs are so unique. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wow! Ingenious! I love the strips to make the hexagon in the middle. It looks very difficult! Leave it to you! You made it SO easy! Yes, I've been quilting a while so I like techniques that are easy YET look very difficult! The more bang for my buck! Thank you for sharing this innovative technique, Debby!

  4. I never thought that I was invincible to STD s or pregnancy or anything else parents warn their kids about. I just didn’t think about it. I was in a monogamous relationship and thought that I asked the right questions.  We even talked about marriage Scary.  During that time I was in college and donated blood on a regular basis in efforts to help others when I could. As you may know, each donation is tested.  Well, on July 6th I had a meeting with a Red Cross representative and was told that I had HIV. “What went through your mind when you heard that "Rose" Good question reader! To be honest, I thought my life was over, that I would ever find love, get married, have children or anything normal. Lucky for me I have an amazing support system.  My family supported me then as well. who helped me in search of cure through the media.there we saw a good testimony of sister 'Kate' about the good work of Dr Akhigbe natural herbal medicine cure.then I copied his email address and contacted him. A good herbalist doctor with a good heart, he is kind, loving and caring. He replied back to my message and told me what to do. It after a week the doctor sent me my herbal medicine and instructed me how to take it.Yes it worked very well, after drinking it I went to the hospital for another test and everything turned negative. What a wonderful testimony I can never forget in my life. Dr Akhigbe is a man who gave me a life to live happily forever so all I want you all to believe and know that cure of HIV is real and herbs is a powerful medicine and it works and heals.  Dr Akhigbe also used his herbal medicine to cure diseases like:   HERPES, DIABETES, SCABIES, HEPATITIS A/B, STROKE, CANCER, ALS, TUBERCULOSIS, ASTHMA, PENIS ENLARGEMENT, MALARIA, LUPUS, DEPRESSION, HIV/AIDS, EPILEPSY, BACTERIAL, DIARRHEA, HEART DISEASES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, PARKINSON'S, ALZHEIMER, HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS,INSOMNIA,  BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS, SCHIZOPHRENIA, JOINT PAIN, STOMACH PAIN, CHROME DISEASES, CHLAMYDIA, INSOMNIA HEART BURN, ,  THYROID, MAR BURG DISEASES, MENINGITIS, ARTHRITIS, BODY WEAK, SMALLPOX, DENGUE, FEVER, CURBS, CHANCRE, ETC.   You are there and you find yourself in any of these situations, kindly contact Dr Akhigbe now to help you get rid of it. Here is his email address:      or you can write to him on whats app with his phone number:   +2349010754824.
