Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

This month begins round two for Snip.Sew.Send. Unfortunately some of the ladies had to step out due to life changes but they will be missed! Now there are only seven of us and we will make two blocks so that we end up with a total of 14.

July was Lula Dahl's turn and she requested wonky stars. The sky was pretty much the limit on what we could do with them. I decided to make one a bit normal and one that was not.

First up is the so called simple one. I say that because it gave me a lot of trouble. It is funny how a simple block can be the problem child while the more complex one was easy. The issue with this block was due to me sewing at one in the morning. I know, bad zonnah for sewing when tired. Always a no, no. But for the record I could not sleep :( Also, I had to get creative with the blue fabric to make it fit the block and I used every last piece of it!

Did you notice the star was rotated? I also copied Anne's star block and put muliple fabrics in the points.

Next, is my favorite. I love this block and think it would be interesting to see a whole quilt made out of it.

I hope you like it Rebecca.
