Eight-Point Stars

I've been hand-piecing 8-pt Stars for a reproduction quilt by Moda in conjunction with their Collection for a Cause "Hope".  It is a strippy quilt c. 1840-60 found in MA that is now owned by Moda's owner.  I know that in order to finish this quilt to be ready for display in my booth at MaineQuilts2011 in July, I will need to make some blocks by machine, but it is so relaxing in the evening to quietly piece these.  A free pattern can be downloaded at the United Notions website. 


  1. Le Moyne stars are so pretty, but takes a long time to do. I'm doing my own BOM this year with the Hope collection. I call it Medallion of Hope, very original ;-)
    It's a wonderful collection.

  2. I'm always isn love with eight point stars! Love the fabrics you used. Which fabric is your background?

  3. The background fabric is the one that came with the Hope fabric line......light ecru/tan color.
