This is a “Bright Morning Star” quilt block. It is made using diamonds and triangles from different kinds of wood, all in their natural colors. I used some bright exotic wood on this one. There are 80 pieces on this block, 32 diamonds and 48 triangles, all full size. It measures 7” square. To finish them, I use one coat of varnish brushed on and 2 or 3 coats of a clear wiping varnish, rubbed in by hand.

The type of wood is listed on the bottom from the center out. On this quilt block the wood is “Oak” from Missouri, “Purple Heart” from Central or South America, “Satinwood” from Brazil, “Hackberry” and “Walnut” from Missouri.

It comes with either a hanger or felt dots on the back. Let me know which you want.

I made this quilt block in 2010. On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date, the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information on how I make these. To see other quilt blocks I’ve made, click on “Quilt Blocks over $30.00” or whatever gets your interest under “Sections in this shop”. The “Home” page itself can be rather confusing with everything mixed up. The “Sections in this shop” lets me show you all like items together as a unit.

Payment can be made using Pay Pal for immediate shipment, money order or check. Checks will have to clear before shipment is made.
