Hive 1 Block for T: April 2017

I adore star blocks so I was really excited by T telling us to pick our own star blocks.  I made two blocks.

The first block is a paper pieced block called Lone Starbust from the Six White Horses blog. I've been wanting to make this for a while and this was the perfect excuse.  The fabric in the center has unbalanced stripes & I decided to go with it and didn't worry about matching the stripes.



While trimming the block I nicked into the seam allowance.  So I made a second block. It's Wombat Quilt's Starry Night paper pieced block. I really like that center star has an orange outline.



Here are the two blocks together.  I hope you like them.

While I don't usually pay too much attention to stash bee blocks. this one is amazing! I love the yellow and blue combo. The EPP adds a very nice charm to this block too! Wow.

These are really pretty. I'm thinking I might need to make a quilt for my grandson using stars.
