A Star Kissed Finish from Wedding Dress Blue

The Star Kissed tutorial/pattern is written for four different sizes, and I just HAD to make all of them.  Tops were finished for three sizes and the fourth is in the works, but it was time to get one truly finished:

This is a single block based on 2-1/2″ squares, with borders added.

Finished at 36″ square. A fun table topper, wall hanging or baby quilt.  Or, make four blocks for a bed size quilt (with borders, of course).

YAY!

Star Kissed Quiltalong: Another Layout from Wedding Dress Blue

How are you doing with your Star Kissed blocks?  Remember there is no hurry, but I do like to know how it is going and if there is anything I can do to help.

DSC01862

Today I am sharing another option for your blocks.  (Information on the entire quiltalong HERE.) Since the quilt is designed in four different block sizes, I decided to make four different quilts to show some ideas that might work for you.

These blocks are based on 1-1/2″ squares.  Four of them, with triple sashing (also based on 1-1/2″) makes a 37″ baby quilt or ...

Star for Selina OP 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

Just one block, recoloured to fill spaces with much more interest than just making the same version over and over.

The centre block in the second design is the block as it appears in full colours.

Also has the quilting design ready to stitch … just follow the seam lines which are not there!

Quiltalong Alert: Star Kissed from Wedding Dress Blue

Your response to Star Kissed was so kind!  Thank you!

DSC01732

I am still sewing along on blocks.  There are 8 of them now.  And I still like them a lot.

 

So, here’s the deal:  If you find this project interesting, start gathering squares–1-1/2″ or 2″ or 2-1/2″.  Whatever makes you happy.  I will shortly produce a quiltalong that will make a quilt using that size.  It has been a while.

Come, sew along!

Star quilt block from Pieced Brain

Two of my quilty girlfriends and I are sewing star blocks for a quilt. We meet every month or so and exchange 12" blocks using a specific fabric collection - this way the quilt will have a more harmonious colorway. We are working with Gretel by Amy Smart for Penny Rose Fabrics.

When we meet today I will give them each one of these star blocks I made. Don't you love it? I found it in the book "I Love Star Blocks - 16 Quilts from an All-Time Favorite Block" published by Martingale in 2017. The quilt it came from is ...

Patchwork Picnic from Pieced Brain

How do you like my star block? I had been looking for a different star block for a quilt my friends Deb, Lisa, and I are working on and was so happy when I found this one! It is beautiful and, surprise, it is super easy to make! I made three blocks just like this one - super fast as it did not involve paper piecing.

Instead, we use the stitch-and-flip method and chain piece all the patches. I think a quilt made entirely with this star in many colors would look fantastic. Yes, I have just placed this idea on ...
