I know it’s late, but I still made it…Happy Thursday! I have two different blocks to share with you today.
First, my Wonky Star for week 2, I like this star better than the first! More hot cocoa is a must and I’m now down to one colorway left from this print. I love the striped center; it reminds me of candy canes. The white star points are also fun as you can play a little bit of I-spy with the Christmas inspired prints. This star was easier to make as my background fabric was non-directional and I could sew my points on any side. I also angled my half square triangles higher to get more of a point, which I prefer 🙂 Super excited about completing this quilt for the holidays and getting some pictures of it with the Christmas tree!
For my second block, I completed Penny Rose Fabrics Traditional Block Thursday, Snowball. A super easy block to make! These were made with 6.5″ centers and 2.5″ corners. I went with a very scrappy look making each block unique with different backgrounds. I love how this block turned out, but I’m also kicking myself for making one snowball too small and having to create a new one. Measure twice, cut once!!! Ugh, the fabrics were perfect together and I only had scrap sizes to cut from. The second block is made from the same fabric as the first, but with the center and background fabrics switched, which is all I had left of these two fabrics. Owell, the smaller snowball can be a quilt label for another project.
I really love the colors and prints in this Snowball block. I’ve been waiting on the right block to showcase the Scotty Dog and Umbrella prints ❤ I also love the center where the four different background fabrics meet to create a colorful diamond shape.
Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!
