The challenge of this quilt was to make it entirely from my stash except for the background. I ended up adding 3 fabrics for the border. The beauty of Erin Underwood's Diamond Star is in the construction that used no "Y" seams. It went together very easily. The large open areas in the background gave quilter, Sheri Zalar, room to work her magic with her longarm. She used both computerized and hand guided original quilting designs.
