May Spinning Star
Note: Keep in mind that the tutorials are for multi-colored stars but we will be using white and one other color. HOWEVER, you may use more than one print in recipients color choice in your stars.
Perhaps you want to make the center a red print and a white print and a different red print for the outer spikes of the stars. Use your imagination and have fun with these blocks.
Senders will make one 12 Â½â€ star quilt block for recipients in white and recipients color choice as posted in comments below. (finished star blocks will be 12â€ when assembled in a project)
Each month we will make a different star quilt block for a total of 12 which we can use on individual projects or put together for one quilt.
Doing your neatest work make one 12 Â½â€ block for your partner using white (plain white, or tone-on-tone white) and any shades of the color they choose. If they want blue then use a print fabric that is mostly blue. The blue print you use may include other colors if they are very small and do not take away from the basic color blue. Keep in mind that the tutorials are for multi-colored fabrics and we are using two colors.
Senders pick a basic color that would be easy for any partner to find either in their stash or at their favorite fabric shop.
Come and join us for this fun series of quilt blocks! Links to tutorials will be available each month.
I hope to see you there!
