When Linda Franz posted a photo of the Morse Star on the Inklingo Facebook page, I commented that I would like to see the second row of partial stars radiate out to make the block large enough to be a baby quilt. The trick to making radiating rows is to add the unit I’ve colored in purple as shown below.


When drawing a complex block in Electric Quilt, it is simpler to draw just a quarter of the block. When placed into a quilt design, there will be what looks like a seam running vertically and horizontally through the center of the quilt splitting some of the quilt pieces in half.  Obviously you would use the full piece instead of halves when creating the quilt.

1-Morse-Star-RadiatingShall we call the 36 inch block Endeavor?

14-Morse-Star-RadiatingThis 36 inch block makes a fabulous center for a medallion-style quilt. A 72 inch quilt using the Inklingo Star, Castle Wall, and Free Diamond-Triangle-Square Collections.

16-Morse-Star-RadiatingI couldn’t decide if I like the interplay between light, medium and dark better in this one or the one above. Either way, I would be doing some major fussy cutting for the diamonds, kites and Castle Wall centers so I suppose it wouldn’t matter. I made a slideshow gallery to show you some of the other designs I was playing around with in Electric Quilt.
