Diamond-Hearted Stars

I'm here again!

Before I show you my latest stars, I would like to give you a hint to visit at Grit's blog.

She gathered all the star maker's together and there is  the gorgeous star quilts / blocks parade on her blog.

Ever since I finished the Nested Ohio Star for Oh, my Star quilt, I have been thinking to replace it some other star.

Yesterday I decided to fix it and it became a 12" Diamond-Hearted Star. I 'm pretty sure now, I made a right decision, when I decided to change nested Ohio star...


If you are sewing Diamond-Hearted Stars with these instructions, you'll get 4 HST units as side-products. Very clever, I think!

I'm planning to use them as the center pieces for the 8" or 4" star blocks.

 Diamond-Hearted Star in three sizes: 12", 8" and 4". Yes, my quilt needs more of these;o)
  
I have now sewn 33 stars: 6 x 12", 9 x 8" and 18 x 4"...
... and I also made the other important decision...
My quilt will be lap size quilt...
for it I have to sew yet 6 x 12", 11 x 8" and 34 x 4" blocks.

I'm not sure, when I'll be back with the next stars, 
because on Thursday I'm going to go to the hospital for a 'small' surgery. If all goes fine, I'm back home on Friday or Saturday, but I don't know, how painful I feel myself then...

But until next time...
I wish you Plenty of Happy Stitching Moments!!!

PS. Did you notice a new quilt along logo at the upper part of the sidebar. It's a Friendship blog hop, where the Moda Designers will be sharing friendship block patterns. You'll find the schedule of the blog hop here.

Voi että tykkään tähdistäsi! Minulla on kai tuota samaa vihreää unikkoa, alunperin se oli silityslaudan päällinen, jonka nappasin parempaan käyttöön. Toivon sinulle onnistunutta sairaalakeikkaa sekä pikaista ja kivutonta toipumista.
