Daredevils #7: Harriet's Star

Daredevils #7 Harriet's Star

Scroll down to see the pattern for a 15" finished block.

Denniele Bohannon's #7
 Harriet's Star with pink curved pieces added digitally.

Becky Brown's #7

There was enough to fussy cut in the official pattern that Becky didn't need to add anything (except a lot of daredevil stripes meeting in the center.)

#7 by Dorry Emmer
Fussy cutting Polka Dots!



We need a diamond star if we are going to show off so I looked for one in BlockBase to adapt to the Daredevils format. #3801 had good proportions. I erased a lot of straight lines in EQ8 and added the corner curve. The Nancy Page newspaper column called the block Stars & Cubes. The fictional Nancy Page from women's feature writer Florence LaGanke Harris syndicated a traditional pattern column during the 1930s.


The Block

Right click on it and save it to your file.
Print that file out 8-1/2" x 11". The small square should measure 1"
Adjust the printed page size if necessary.
