Zigzags or Stars?

I bought some Denyse Schmidt fabric and then decided I didn't like it so much. I started making a zigzag quilt and used  grey that just made the colours die. My fault - bad choice.

Anyway the triangles have sat in a box for 4 months.
This weekend they came out. After playing for a little while with all sorts of patterns I decided to make a giant star out of the triangles.

I still don't like the grey but liked the star idea as a new project.
After sewing it up I realised that the giant corners were going to need filling.

Four mini stars are on the way. The squares are just over an inch so the star is so bumpy! I am still not sure what I will fill in the rest of the gant star with but I like the purple shot cotton I used on the little star.


  1. Ooh, I like it very much! I'm on a hst kick now too.

  2. It's looking very nice although I also liked the zig zags. I want to make one of those zig zag quilts one of these days. It feels like there are just not enough hours in a day and days in a week ;). Have a good Sunday. Vreni x

  3. It is going to be a beautiful quilt. I think you have the right idea of making those little stars for the corners.

  4. This is so pretty! I really like the big star! I have some Denyse Schmidt fabric that I have been saving for just the right project!

    I saw this quilt along I may use it for!
