Episode 2404 Description and Preview
Double Stars combines two sizes of the same quilt block to create a secondary design. The “double effect” is taken a step further by putting a star within a star and using a solid with a print for this quilt. Star patterns like Double Stars make quilting exciting! Jodie Davis joins Mary Fons to show you the basics of creating the 8-pointed star block.
Featured Quilt: Double Stars
A color combination that seems to work, no matter the era, is blue and green. In Double Stars, shades of blue and green are combined and set against a crisp, white background, making these colors pop! Do you see the star-in-a-star blocks? Small 8-pointed stars are nestled in a larger 8-pointed star. Spectacular!
Double Stars was designed, made and quilted by Nancy Mahoney. The quilt is featured in the Love of Quilting July/August 2014 issue.
