Four more blocks from the Star Struck Block of the Month to show...
Kind of a twisting star, very simple construction.
And a more fiddly block, the star within a star within a star. I mostly machine pieced, except for the interior star, which measures 3" across. The center square is one and a half inches. And those triangles that make up the star points are pretty darn tiny, I didn't want them to disappear inside my sewing machine.
Almost finished with the blocks, there are only 4 more. Then comes the real work! I need to sew on 2" strips all the way around each block, then add sashing which will create secondary stars. I'm going to look in my stash for something suitable, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to find fabric for the peach and pink quilt. But I think I'll be doing some blue batik shopping in the near future. Yay! Any excuse to set foot in a quilt shop.
