Design Wall Monday Aug 6th
I got playing with this little star block that also has a churn dash look in it. I looked in the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara Brackman, but did not find a name for it. I am going to call it Churn Dash Star. My friend Joan A made one of these and I thought I would give it a try. I am using some of my older stash fabric with a few fabrics I just love. Love the pink dots. I am in so much trouble starting something new. I should be quilting and finishing some of my quilts. Maybe someone will have a baby girl and I will need a little quilt. Ha, no babies expected around me. Me and my sister in law's have all said no more, my kids are too young, my friends are too old, and no co-workers. May end up as a charity quilt.
I have a few other blocks cut out ready to assemble. I have figured out if I cut a fabric to show up three times (once in each spot), it uses half a fat quarter or a 6 inch strip.
Here is Joan's quilt she was working on back in June. So much fun looking.
I have added today's post to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
Edit - I have found out that the block is on the front cover of Simple Graces Charming Quilts Companions by Kim Diehl. Thanks You Dolores.
