QUILT BLOCK MANIA - STAR BRIGHT

QUILT BLOCK MANIA - STAR BRIGHT

Posted by Marcea Owen on 25th Nov 2020

December is a busy month, so I wanted to do a fun, easy quick block. Stars are one of my most favorite things. In fact, when I first started quilting, I bought a fat quarter of every fabric that I found that had a star in it. Those first quilts always contained at least one star fabric.

With this block I combined a Star with my favorite applique method, 

"ABSTRACT APPLIQUE". If you want to learn more about it, I have a

YouTube video that goes into detail FUSIBLES AND APPLIQUES.

Here is a close up of the stitching.  You can choose a matching thread to

blend in or a contrasting thread to really make the piece pop.

Because I like to show how you can use the block, this time I made 3 

extra blocks and put them together in a mini quilt. I used the center star

from the templates to make a star to put in the middle of the four blocks.
