4 point stars, Amelia

Amelia Poore-Bone, Quilting Creations by Amelia, Lake Jackson, Texas
Amelia was just starting on her longarm quilting adventures when she received this quilt and I was thrilled when she was up for the challenge of using bright pink thread on it. How wonderful are the results!
Amelia used two point to point designs in the blockwork. The first was in the star points where she used a kite shape and one was placed into each of the star points - with them sewing out continuously one to the other until the complete star was sewn. The string pieced area used a p2p triangle - where half the design was completed in one pass, and then the other half required another pass. This was most useful around the edges where there was only one half of the diamond to sew.

Quilting Patterns Used

  • Borders and corners: Misty bdr & cnr (2)
  • Star Points: Misty 4 point stars p2p (3)
  • Diamonds - 2 per diamond, the flatter half: Emma tri b p2p

Tips & Info

  • the p2p triangle Amelia used was a regular 90 degree one - but she controlled for height, reducing it right down to fit happily into her particular half diamond triangle. By setting the height and turning the freeze aspect ratio off, the triangle comes into the screen at that height every time - you do not have to put in boundaries and go back and alter each individual one.
