Star Quilts: 35 Blocks, 5 Projects – Easy No-Math Drafting Technique
I made a block for the space challenge!
I love star blocks and haven’t made one for awhile. So I sat down with my EQ6 software and did a quick design for a paper pieced star block. Here is my concept block. I thought it would look good with a blue-ish background and hot colors for the star points.
And here is my actual block…
So what are you waiting for? It’s just ONE block. You can do it! For more information about the challenge from the Quilts, Inc. website.

My Doorway Quilt Pattern
12″ x 36″ Doorway Quilt
My new downloadable pattern is up on Craftsy.com! I call it a “Doorway Quilt” because I made it to hang in that little space above the doorway. But as I described it on Craftsy:
Are you headed for another dimension in space and time? You could be! This little quilt is a great way to work in colors you aren’t used to, or combinations you never thought possible. Have some fun, use up those scraps, and finish this little quilt in just a day. I hung mine above one of my doorways and it adds that spark of color and spark of the unexpected. But you could hang it vertically as well as horizontally…or it could be a table topper too. Use that imagination!
The pattern is only $3.00 and you can download it right now! And check out my other downloadable patterns in my pattern shop at Craftsy.com and enjoy!
