It was my turn to pick a block for our 'block party' group and I loved the idea of an 'asterisk' quilt block using my fabrics mixed with coordinating solids and any solid grey. The blocks are to be a finished size of 16.5" x 18.5".
We meet again on September 21st and I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
These are the progression of my blocks...
|I cut my block on a diagonal.|
|Added a second strip to make an X.|
|After adding my third strip, auditioning strip #4.|
|Cut this area away to reduce bulk and multiple seems.|
|Trimmed up the asterisk block and added fabric|
on 3 sides to complete the 16.5 x 18.5" block!
And here is how Block #2 progressed...
|Block 2 started with a square of solid fabric.|
|Auditioned Asterisk in my pattern of choice.|
|Added my strips and then cut out the bulky |
center piece to make room for strip #4.
|Added piece #4 and trimmed my rough edges.|
These fabrics from my new collection were designed in these colors specifically for my Modern Quilt Guild in Jupiter Florida! All of the fabrics are a part of my 'Country Fresh' Modern Quilt Collection. (Available Here)
