One of my sewing goals for 2012 is to participate in a quilting bee. I signed up for the charity bee do. Good Stitches at the end of last year, and I was accepted into the Imagine circle which happens to be run by the lovely Amanda. Our circle will be donating our quilts to Threading Hope!
Our first month’s blocks are sawtooth stars made from red, pink, white, and a little bit of accent gray. I happen to have plenty of scraps in these colors, so I didn’t need to dig into my stash for these blocks. Woohoo!
This first block ended up nothing like I originally planned, but in a good way! This was one of those times where I kept messing up the cutting and sewing and had to go to plan b, and then c, and then… well, you get the idea. It was an accident that the inner star is white instead of pink, but I think it looks pretty awesome anyway.
I wanted to do some interlocking stars like in this Sparkle Punch quilt, so my second block has three little scrappy interlocking stars. Check out the other blocks from the bee here!
Great blocks! Is there a tutorial for the big star? Please send me a mail if…..
Sorry, there is no pattern. I made it up as I went! There are a lot of free patterns online though for star quilt blocks.
