I was searching around in my bits and pieces today when I came across a star block that I made some time ago. I was making it for part of my tree skirt online class. As per usual, I didn't just make one star, but got a little carried away and made five instead.
The first one was a 9" finished block.
This star block is super easy. I used snowball corners to make the star points so everything is cut in squares.
To make this block a bit more a challenge I decided I should add some smaller stars in the corners. Each small star block is 3" finished.
That's some pretty small pieces don't you think? Okay, so I got wondering, "What if I made a star in the center square of my 3" star?" Good thought? Hmmmmmm, this would mean a 1" star - I couldn't waste too much fabric on that.
To fill up my camera screen, I had to get really close to the block, so close infact that you can even see the grain in the fabric. This was fun. Have you ever made a 1" star block before? I don't think I'd like to make a full bed quilt this way!
Those star points are just 1/4", I wonder if I could do 1/8"....
