Pam Buda's newest BOM quilt features Diamond Star blocks, and it celebrates the mid-nineteenth century when red and green quilts were the rage. Quilts of the era were often made with a muslin background and solid prints, but many were pieced using a variety of calicos. Pam designed a soft neutral print to echo the muslin background color, but with a classic feel. "You'll love the collection of red and green prints
 that blend perfectly, making the Diamond Star blocks shine!"

Through the 9-month program, quilters will make a Diamond Star block each month, along with Nine Patches, Half Square Triangles, and Chevron border units over the nine month program. While the Diamond Star may look difficult to make, it isn't! No special tools are required. A suggested coordinating 108" backing is also available.

The BOM highlights the fictional story of Rachel, who creates this very special quilt in celebration of her parents' 20th anniversary. Rachel's parents were married in 1835. Working as a school teacher during the week, she has secretly been saving money from her afternoon tutoring to buy fabric to make her parents a special anniversary gift. Rachel has chosen to surprise her parents with a red and green quilt, which her mother loves, and is so popular. Quilters are invited to join the fun as they stitch a replica of Rachel's Tribute to her loving parents.
