We love stars! One of Chris’s books was devoted entirely to stars –
and we’ve taken a star theme for our 2022 Doodles. Each month we’ll feature a different star block from the EQ and BlockBase libraries and show some colour and value changes to the block and then show the block in some simple quilt settings. Where possible we’ll include a free download pdf of the templates for a 12inch block. You could stitch all or just some of the blocks, multiples of one block, maybe even collect them all together to make a Stellar Sampler.
Here’s Block One – Double Windmill from the EQ Library. Download the PDF.
Some changes to both colour and value placement –
Significant differences emerge in simple quilt settings –
It’s always worth considering the “on point” option –
Sashing can make a real difference whether the setting is straight or on point –
If you would like to make this block or an entire quilt then download the PDF which contains cutting instructions, templates, piecing instructions and colouring-in pages!
