If you want a really easy way out go to Linda Franz's Inklingo site - her freebie is a 4.5" eight point star with setting corners & triangles. You just print it onto the back of your fabric cut & sew - lovely. If you want them larger you could always change the scale of your printer, but you will get larger seam allowances as well.

I think that if you trace Christine's pattern onto a fusible like Steam a Seam 2 that is sticky until you heat set it, you can just cut the fusible apart and fuse each segment onto the fabric of your choice, trim the fabric to match the fusible and arrange the pieces on the pattern then fuse it all to the paper pattern. I don't think she meant this to be a sewing project at all.

Having spent all of yesterday evening trying to put this together for Christine Barnes lesson and having just watched Edyta's show I thought it would be easy peasy. But it was not. Thanks for the maths Rosemary. it took a few reads before I understood it. Maths reads as blah blah blah to me first time around. :lol: Having cut out enough fabric to do two stars for Christine's class last night I now find I will have to start again. :roll: Thank goodness it's a new day everyday. :roll: :lol:

P. S. I just looked at the comments on lesson 1 of Christine's class and she says that we are meant to make mock-ups on the printout template and not actual stars. That explains why she didn't give the measurement of the diamond. :idea:

The sides of the square are the same length as the sides of the diamond.
The 2 short sides of the triangle are the same length as the sides of the diamond & the sides of the square, and you would do better using a 1/4 square triangle so that you had straight grain on the outside.

Does this help?

Help! I get how Edyta cut her diamonds for the star, but then, how do we correlate the size of the squares to the size of the diamonds? Christine Barnes has an 8-point star for the first lesson in the color classroom. She gives the size of the corner squares & size of the square for the HST's, but her strip would have to be 1 3/4", right? Is there a formula?

Lyn, it's more like a danger to my pocketbook!! I am just as insane as she is about quilting, so no risk there for more insanity!

OMG! I'm going to have to ban The Quilt Show from my leisure activity. I absolutely love her inspiration and her joy of the art. However, she is becoming a danger to my sanity! Thanks TQS!

Loved this show! Edyta's work is beautiful. Like Lois, it just makes me want to go make another quilt. I want her books, I want her laser cut applique pieces - Santa's list is getting BIG :D

Doesn't Edyta just make you feel good? Her joy in creating comes right through the glow on her face. I have some of her batiks and they're wonderful. So talented and inspirational. I would love to meet her someday and see her quilts in person.
