Last Friday Sherri released her Quilting Life Block of the Month pattern for February. It is made using half-square triangles so I used my Accuquilt GO! Big to cut the squares. Between the cutter and the simplicity of the pattern, I had my block together in no time at all.
Sherri calls this one Scrappy Stars
Then I wanted to try a technique my friend Gene Black uses for making flying geese and his Flying Star pattern. He shares both in a YouTube video (what did we do before YouTube?!?) You can click here to go directly to the video and here to read Gene’s blog post about the block.
Using this method you make four flying geese at a time.
And that is exactly how many you need for one Flying Star block.
I used the Go! Big again and cut some B&C Miss Kate fabrics to make more of these stars. I also cut some pieces to use in a leaders and enders project. These will make perfect half-square triangles.
Have you been seeing stars lately?
