Eccentric Star

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Eccentric Star quilt block is mainly made using half square triangles and simple squares. A really easy to assemble block, and can have a nice effect on a quilt, especially if you like Star Quilts.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”8805″ img_size=”large” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”http://zarkadia.com/2015/04/farmers-wife-qal-week-6/”][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”11286″ img_size=”large” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” onclick=”img_link_large” img_link_target=”_blank”][vc_column_text]

Cutting instructions for the Eccentric Star quilt block

Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.

And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Finished

Cut 1 square for center
from Dark fabric
Cut 4 squares for HST from Light & Medium fabric
3” 1.5” 1 and 7/8”

Block variations

Eccentric Star quilt block has some variations that are almost the same block. You can try some of them by using more than two different fabrics and being extra careful with what you cut prior to sewing the block.

The Box quilt block can also be found in the Farmer’s Wife Quilt series, and I have already posted a post about it here.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
