Quilter's Blog Fest

 My Pumpkin Pie quilt. I made this star quilt in a class. I had made star quilts before but with plenty of problems. In this class we sewed the strips then cut the diamond strips to sew into large diamonds then we drew a grid based on the measurements of the small diamonds then pinned each of the 8 diamonds to the grid and starched and pressed. They went together perfect!
 I found a fabric with fall motifs for the setting squares I had to add a border to each so they would fit the diamonds then set more diamonds around the squares to make the pie crust. Already planning my Thanksgiving menu the kids will all be home. --Ann-- Blogger's Quilt Fest

Ann ... Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind comment.

Your quilt is beautiful. Fall quilts are my favorites as I love the colors of fall. One of my WIPs is a lonestar quilt. Sew tricky. The extra border for your setting squares makes the perfect "crust" to your "pie" ... makes a yummy looking quilt ... :) Pat

Great quilt. The pie crust outer edge is really impressive. Looks like it was a lot of work, but well worth it.

This is a great fall quilt. One of these stars is on my bucket list, so I'll have to remember the grid and starching tips.
