Seeing stars

I'm getting caught up/getting a jump-start on my quilt bee blocks. Evidently, stars are "in."

Carpenter Star http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.giffor Cherie
Cherie sent us beautiful Secret Garden fabric to make Carpenter's Star blocks using her own tutorial. I love the way this turned out, and it makes a huge (18 inches) block.

Ring of Stars block for do. Good Stitches
For the Peace circle of do. Good Stitches in December, we made the Ring of Sars block using Angela's tutorial. These are adorable and fun to make, but I can't say I'll be making another anytime soon. SO many tiny pieces!

Sawtooth stars for do. Good Stitches
For do. Good Stitches in January, we're making 4-, 8-, and 12-inch stars for a quilt inspired by the Oh My Stars quilt-along. I used this tutorial for Sawtooth Stars at Thought and Found. I love the way these are put together. Very clever.

Sunrise Star block for do. Good Stitches
This is my 12-inch star. I used Becky's Sunrise Star tutorial, and I think this might be my new favorite block!

Love them!! And yes, I think stars are uber-popular at the moment :)

Love all the stars!! And I agree about the ring of stars block, I made one and that was enough for me! So small and fiddly. Turned out adorable, definitely, but I'm not rushing to make another one!

Love the first picture too, very similar to a swoon block.

Excellent blocks, Katie! That last star is fabulous!

Cool, I had no ideas stars were so popular. Love them all, but especially the last one. ;) Thanks for linking up to me!

Debbie said...

SO nice! They are all really gorgeous!

Cherie said...

Love it, love it, love it!
