Description

My stepson wanted something simple and muted, along the lines of an Amish star quilt.

I wanted to experiment with using a layer cake--and with an easy method of cutting out units of two pieced triangles from layer cake pieces sewn along the edges.  (I got this idea from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. video for a pinwheel quilt.) 

Approximately full size.

As with all my quilts, I wanted this to be attractive, personal, and useful, so I wasn't too fussy, and I cheated where I needed to.
