Nancy shows you how to create a diamond star with English Paper Piecing.
Nancy shows you how to create this lovely star quilt using diamond papers; the 6 pointed star uses 60 degree papers and of course if you wanted to have an 8 pointed star then you would need 45 degree papers – but method of sewing the colours into strips would remain the same. (and indeed there is a delightful pattern that comes complete with papers for you to purchase in the shop).
Nancy also talks about adding in the setting squares and triangles, and these she does using applique. It is the same method she uses to add on her border, which you can enjoy by clicking here.
