Diary of Quilter. She has links on her site to other styles of the star quilt. I played around with the colors a bit and the number of colors and came up with this.

My son wanted a new quilt. He went into my Pinterest page and picked out one from this site. There were no patterns. So as I told you before I had to do math. Lots of it. And fractions. But the end result was this beautiful creation that he and the dog love.

I don't sew small things. It hurts my hands to cut them out and they never come out neat and straight. So I always sew large things. Then I came across the blog of Lori Holt at Bee in My Bonnet. She makes sewing small things easy. Her techniques are easy to follow and her pictures are very helpful. She not only showed me I could sew small pieces she also opened up my eyes to a whole new way to use my scraps. You need to read her post on this. Pow! Mind blowing. So I had this quilt which I haven't finished yet. It is Suburbs from Cluck Cluck Sew. Another great blog. I haven't put the backing on yet but I had tons of scraps left over.

Let's start with the math. I don't do math. I am an attorney. You have heard the old joke that lawyers don't do math. Well it is holds true for me. But I saw this heart quilt and fell in love with it. Then Z asked me to make it for him. There was no pattern. So this is where the math comes in. I had to figure out how to make this with no pattern. I decided to graph it.
