|Stack-n-Whack Morning Star Placemats|
The pattern for these stars are from Bethany S. Reynolds' book Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts. Hers were made into quilts, I thought this pattern would be great for Christmas placemats with the addition of strips of the main fabric on either side.
Six – 60˚ diamonds form the stars, all cut from one busy Christmas fabric which gave me lots of variety. Two different similar light backgrounds were used simply because I ran out of one when I decided to keep making more.

I kept the quilting simple with stitching-in-the-ditch around the diamond shapes and doing a large stipple on the background.
These measure 12” x 16” and were Made in 2000.
