It’s nearly the end of the year (how did that happen?) and we’ve reached the last few of our stellar blocks. These are more eight-pointed stars, somewhat akin to the Blazing Star blocks from last month. You can download the 12 inch patterns and blocks to colour for all the blocks featured today here – it is free remember)
We start with Key West
If you divide that up a bit you get Morning Star (we have dubbed this Morning Star 2 in the download – you’ll see why in a moment)
Take the centre points of Key West and add pointed corners to make April Star
If you then take those points and divide them you get Shadow Star
Divide just the corner points of April Star to make Star and Cone
Or make the centre points shorter (and thus fatter at the end) to make Guiding Star
Then we come to our other Morning Star – a Blazing Star / April Star / Key West with added bits!
But we couldn’t leave our stellar year without reminding you of the Tangled Star block
You can find a pattern to make a runner using this block over in our Payhip shop along with many other patterns for runners, quilts and table toppers.
We hope you have enjoyed our exploration of some of the multitude of star blocks – and please download the patterns (they are free) and play with the ‘block to colour’ pages – split up the various bits of the stars and design your own extra stellar blocks.
