Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 10 (+ Giveaway)

Congratulations to Quiltmaker magazine for Volume 10 of their 100 Blocks special issues.

http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/

I'm happy that I have a block in Volume 10. And I am giving away a copy of this fabulous issue to a random winner from among those who comment on this post. Just leave a comment by midnight on Sunday, November 23rd.

My block is a variable star (my favorite block to stitch), but with a churn dash block embedded in it.


My first go at the block didn't have enough contrast among the fabrics.


I redid the block in traditional fabrics with more contrast. Much better.



An easy block that works with all styles of fabrics. Just make sure there's sufficient contrast to show off the star and the churn dash.

Remember to leave a comment to be part of the drawing for a free issue.  If you are a no -reply blogger, you'll need to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if you're the winner!
