This one was a star right?  I saw it once on the Fons and Porter quilting show but I can't find it on their site.  It is such a cool star. 

It was a glorious star, with a narrow outline around the star lines and you wound up with two stars with reversed colors when you were done.

Equilters has another stack and slash star pattern that looks similar, but it uses a BUNCH of colors and has a completely different (and complicated) procedure http://www.equilters.com/library/techniques/slashstars1.html

I remember this one on the Fons and Porter show quite clearly.  I can't figure out why it isn't listed on any of the show summaries.

They used just 2 fabrics and ended up with 2 star blocks.  I think the shape of the star depends on how you decide to slash each cut.  I just did a mock up with some colored paper and my star came out straighter than the one at that equilter link.

You cut then sew each line of the star before cutting the next line.  Does that make sense?

The tutorial here that is missing the pics says to sew one inch strips between each section as you sew them together, but it seems to me you could also go over the seams with bias tape when you finish.

This block was part of a sampler that they were doing in a series.  It always struck me as a genius simple way to do a fun and funky shaped star. 

McJulie-O- are you going to try and sew it?  Just talking about it makes me want to give it a try.  Four big stars would make a fun baby quilt for some new babies about to come into the lives of my friends.

I absolutely want to, but then, I wanted to when it was originally posted, and then again on the Quilt Block A Month thread, and I didn't do it then, either..... and my summer is a bit CROWDED right now... so I hesitate to fantasize too much...

BUT I REALLY WANT TO...

And if I do, I'll take pictures at approximately the same points as the original poster and post them!!

WHO'S WITH ME!?!?!?  Roll Eyes

I wanted to make it way back when I saw it on television several years ago!  I'm still feeling patriotic, and I love stars so I'll give it a try too ... with pics!
