The foundation papers and strip piecing processes used to create the Tattered Star was designed by Quiltworx in 2014. Since 2014, Quiltworx has republished the strip piecing process for making our diamond stars in several different patterns, changing the sizes, color layouts and background elements. The Tattered Star quilt design was based on using (1) package of our pre-packaged Quiltworx 2-1/2″ Strip Sets along with two distinct accent fabrics to create (48) diamond blocks from (6) different color families. The diamonds were assemble with a paper pieced background called the Spiked Ring background border designed for our Kaleidoscope Mixers.
