TBT – Variable Star

Happy Thursday!

Hurray for the first day of October and we’re finally out of 90 degree temps here in Texas!

Today I completed my Variable Star block, also known as Sawtooth Star or Evening Star. I had hoped to complete this block last week, but was busy completing the Mouse Camp Quilt. The Variable Star block was a breeze to work through. It only required 4 flying geese units, a center square, and background squares. I didn’t have enough of one fabric to make the star, so I went with a scrappy green star on a blue background. From my selection of green reproduction fabric, I focused on light green hues and small, dense prints to keep the star as harmonious as possible. I alternated the points, each pulling yellow and pink from the center square. I’m really happy how lovely it turned out!
