Star Block #5


I kept losing the pieces of this one underneath the tide of junk that has taken over our dining table. The poor dining table usually tends to be the center of the house vortex, where everything ends up that someone doesn't want to put away for the moment, but without a kitchen, it's even worse than usual. Anyway, I put the block together to keep from having to keep cutting replacement pieces.

Rather rushed in the execution - a pretty block made less pretty by my lack of piecing skills. Oh, and it's 12 inches. At least I'm mostly consistent.

I like how you fussy-cut your flower triangles. It makes a big print work! Very nice.

So, are you hand piecing all these blocks? Because I'm going to be even more impressed then.

Connie, no, you can go back to being less impressed. :o) I machine pieced everything except the first block.

I'm using the same yellow polka dot print in one of my quilts! Yay! It's like playing I Spy when I recognize a fabric elsewhere. Love your block.

Ahh, what the heck? I'll still be impressed; it costs me nothing.
