Star Flowers

Bending Pins: Star Flowers #1

I found the initial pattern for this block in Quilter’s Academy Vol.4, the original was called “Snow Crystals” and I instantly fell in love with it. I added the little square of deep fuchsia in the corner blocks which I really love. I was thinking of using this block (or a better one) for the center of a quilt then scattering blossoms around it adding green leaves. This block was a challenge for me because there wasn’t any step-by-step instructions on how to sew and press the seams. I made a few mistakes which I hope to correct in my next iteration. I used Joel Dewberry’s latest line, Notting Hill in Magenta, I love the depth of colour he used!

I’m really struggling on a name for this block, suggestions welcome!

I’m off to attempt another block. What challenges are you working on?
