There are ever so many quilt patterns but none are more charming
than this shaded eight-point one often called the Blazing Star.
Eight little diamond-shaped four patches are pieced and set together
with background triangles to form the block.
Any grouping of colors may be used, and a third color, as
lighter yellow or pale green with the above plan of yellow and
orange could be used instead of the white diamonds. With seams
added to the cutting patterns here given the block finishes about
13 1/2 inches square, or without seams added, 12 to 12 1/2 inches.
This quilt sets together with alternate plain blocks, and
includes 21 pieced blocks, 21 plain blocks and is 6 blocks wide by 7
blocks long plus a 2-inch border which makes it finish about 80 by
93 inches. It requires 1 yard orange, 1 yard yellow and 6 1/2 yards
of white. Allow one yard extra of orange for the border.
