Ohio Star…Take 2

You all are great.  I am adding to my list of blocks you want!  Thank you!

Doris, you asked what  I would do with the star points in the last sample…. here it is…

Here is the 2nd try at designing for the Ohio Star, its a little simpler.. you all know that I don’t do simple very well, right?

Ok, here ya go….

Step 1:  Divide up the open space a little… This is also when I do all of my SID which I always do on custom work!  I used the ProEcho 9!

Step 2:  Need something in the center… so I divide again…

step 3:  Did not like the random arc so I deleted it in the next pic… added some flower feathers and some arcs in the center.

Step 4:  There was a little too much open space in the corner blocks…. I could have made those arcs shallower (is that a word?..LOL) but that would mean redoing and I only rip out for tension issues…. sooooo, I go to my standby and put in some small circles using the ProPebbles 1/2.

  1. I just love your designs and how you make a simple block look so beautiful. I can not wait till I try some of these ideals. Keep it up your great.

    I have never attempted to freemotion a quilt because I look at a finished pieced top and have no idea where to start, but with your tutorials breaking it down to single blocks has made me more confident that I can creat a design for a quilt. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Lisa.
