You may have seen similar blocks on pinterest and want to make some yourself.
First in EQ7 select Block/new block/ patchDraw block
Then in the Grid box select eight pointed star
Then trace every shape on there
Now for piecing purposes, you can either do what it shows on the block OR split the triangles and squares in half, so you won’t have any Y seams
Remember to double click when you connect the lines, when you end up at your starting point.
Do you see what block it is now?? the LeMoyne star block
and there’s quite a few of those in the sketchbook!
Select one of them and add it to sketchbook then edit it and start to draw lines on the star points (unselect snap points so it’s easier to draw the lines)
Because I’m just drawing sections to SEE what a quilt will look like and don’t care about accuracy on this part, it’s easier to draw the lines across the star point by starting and stopping BEFORE and AFTER the lines
When you then click the COLOR tab it shows the lines right
Color it and add to sketchbook
and make a quilt layout with it
Now when you want to actually MAKE this, you can add a leMoyne block to the quilt and print foundation templates
and you should be able to just add strips to the diamond star point piece until it’s full and then add the outside background pieces!
Or you can print templates! (It will print out the diamond shape twice because it’s in reverse, but WE know to just flip the piece over) LOL
If I would make this, I might do the block 12 or 14” this way a quarter of the block with FPP can fit on a piece of paper when I print it
Try it out!
