Our readers already know that we are passionate about crafts, so much so that we have already made available on our site countless tips of this art and several step by step of beautiful pieces such as Crochet Blankets, Quilts Square and now with these novelties of Halo Diamond Star Quilt.
Today we are going to talk about a handmade piece that everyone knows and loves, Halo diamond quilt star. As the name itself suggests, it is made with pieces of fabric sewn together and secured to a lining. This technique has been around for a long time, and is known as patchwork, after Crochet Patterns Free, this is my favorite.
Patchwork quilts can be simple or padded. With the quilting process you have as a result a quilt that heats up and is still quite cozy. The public for the quilts made with flap is large; so producing and selling this product turns out to be a great way to get extra income.
For the corner triangle pieces, instead of using the 45-degree template, I simply cut 4.5-inch squares from the background fabric and then cut them in half on the diagonal. Easy-peasy, no template really necessary for those.
For my Diamond Star Halo quilt, I cut the following number of kaleidoscope (wedge-shaped) triangles:
- 8 white
- 4 purple
- 4 pink
- 4 med blue
- 4 blue floral
- 12 green
- 8 gold floral
- 8 light-colored dot
- 8 light floral
- 4 plaid
- 4 harlequin (center block)
- 4 purple floral (center block)
Plus: 36 white 45-degree triangles (cut 18 4.5-inch squares and subcut on diagonal)
That’s 12 different fabrics, including the white/background. A fat quarter of each would be ample, plus 1/2 yard (or less) of white. Or use scraps. Scraps are good!
Regarding assembly of the blocks, it may seem confusing but remember this: The four blocks that are north-south-east-west are identical. They’re assembled exactly the same way and then the block is just turned the appropriate direction when you lay them out (before sewing the quilt top together).
There are several ways to make bedspreads with pieces of fabric, but in general, the technique used is very simple and is indicated for both veteran dressmakers and beginners. With the mission to help you in this project, we have compiled in this article some wonderful instructions and tips. So be sure to check it out!
