I was inspired to make that quilt block that was part of a daily quilt calendar. Can you see the cat's cradle unit in there? It is made up of 12 cat's cradle units and 4 squares for the corners. I haven't really thought much about this quilt unit before, but it's really quite common in many traditional blocks. That star is a 10" finished block.
This quilt is 33" square and will soon be hanging in my house somewhere. Wouldn't this look great as a big quilt with more blocks, bigger blocks? How about setting the whole thing on point like below?
