Yet more blocks! Well, we wouldn’t want you running out of things to do this year. We’ve been trawling through our old worksheets and class notes and EQ projects from the last (I think we’d rather not say) ‘several’ years and have come up with a random selection of our favourite (mostly) star blocks to add to the ones from this year’s Doodles. Each month we will provide cutting instructions for a 12 inch block – there may be a worksheet to help with piecing as well and a few ideas to go with it. And to start you thinking here’s a few we made earlier –
To start us off we’ve found a nice simple block – the Eccentric Star. Just a few half-square triangles and a centre square. Download the instructions (a worksheet from a long-ago sampler quilt class).
But how you colour it in can change the way the blocks look when put together.
And what happens if you make mirror images of the block (which often happens quite by accident here).
Or if you turn those corner triangles round?
This ‘new’ block is called Ribbon Quilt.
There’ll be another star to download and play with in a month’s time.
