Blog Block #1 Bright Star

Quilt Blocks.  I have a whole collection of quilt block patterns that I've saved - thinking I'll use them someday.  Someday...when is that?  I've finally decided to make a sample of each block to try them out, and I'll be posting them for you to see.  Maybe you'll see one, or two or three, that you'll enjoy making too!

Here is the first block I made.  It's called Bright Star or Christmas Star.  I used 4 fabrics from the line Quilted in Honor by Island Batiks.

I thought I would make all of my blocks 6" x 6".  I may have to rethink that.  The pieces in this block are pretty small at this size.

Sneak Peek - Quilter's Newsletter Magazine

I thought I'd give you a sneak peek of a project that will be coming in a future Quilter's Newsletter Magazine.  I designed and made a table runner using these fabrics from Island Batik.  The fabric line is called Winter Wonderland and they are a lovely variety of blues.  Keep your eyes open for this project!
