    Default Rhombus Star pattern question small vs large

    I really like Jenny's rhombus star quilt. I have made the small star because I just like the way the smaller stars look

    Has anyone made both the large and the small?

    I want to make another to donate to our church, but I am wondering if the big star is easier. Does anyone have a preference? I like easy for donation quilts

    Please let me know your thoughts

    Thank you!

    Bigger is bound to be easier although I've not made either. As far as donation quilts go, I think you just need to make something you enjoy sewing. Color seems to be more important t0 the people buying quilts than the pattern.

    I made a similar one in a class but we used plain 60 degree rulers Jennyís diamond shaped ruler saves you piecing one seam (which makes it a bit easier). Then on mine I used different white and beige tone on tones to make the stars sparkle more. One of my favorite small quilts. I have my photos posted in the gallery under chaitea4me.

    To answer your question, whether you prefer small stars or large stars is totally your preference. My project was only crib to lap size so small stars worked better, but if it were bed size I’d go for the larger stars.

    Those quilts are GORGEOUS! I love the jewel tone effect.

    Can you also get the cube look with this? I noticed that your light areas have almost a 3D effect.

    Same quilt, different views. As for your question, I donít know. I made the quilt per class instructions. The only liberty I took was choosing the pairs of fabrics for the stars, arranging their layouts, and choosing to use the different tone on tone backgrounds. I had 2 other friends take the same class and they chose to use only one fabric for the background. Our quilts all looked different.

    Thank you for the compliment.
