the inspiration for this quilt in the Pat Nickols collection at the Mingei International Museum.
I must have made a miscalculation along the way because this star is about 20 inches square. Much bigger than I had planned. But that's all right. This is all fun sewing. Especially because I decided to construct it like a Kaleidoscope and avoid setting in squares. That is, I sewed two light right triangles to the outside of each diamond before sewing all the diamonds together. As the last step, I added the rust outer corners.
