I made half square triangle blocks from a number of scrap fabrics. I started with 5" squares and combined a colourful print with either oyster white Kona cotton or a light based print to make the squares which finished at 3 3/8" when the top was pieced.
I chose the pattern Barbara Frietsche Star, that I found in the book "Q is for Quilt" by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes, on page 31 under Historic Stars. This is a favourite book.
I find star quilts so cheerful and appealing. This quilt I free motion quilted fast and simply with curves along the triangle edges. The backing is a neutral small brown print. I will machine wash and dry it before I deliver it in early October.
