Today was Word-Up Sewing Party day (see two previous post). During the midst of it all I had a book delivered called, Stars by Magic. (photo in previous post) I knew I just had to try one block before my party was over for the day. The cover says New Super Easy Technique! Diamond-Free Stars from Squares and Rectangles! Perfect Points and No Y-Seams!
This isn't a new book but new to me and the possibilities are endless! I'm smitten! I share with you Block #1, the Eight-Pointed Star. There are 30 different star blocks and each one can be made in a variety of sizes. I'm making 6" blocks.
The downfall is leftover fabrics from the cut-away pieces. The book does share some extra design options in the back of the book to use these bits. I, however, decided to simply stitch the bits together and made the block to the left. What will become of it? Who knows...I'm just having fun discovering new techniques!
My book was purchased at Amazon.com.
