Today, I decided to take some time from working on my Pattern Development and many other projects to make up my Kansas City Start Block of the Month 10 which came in the mail last week.
10 is called "Starry Heavens" and was published in the Kansas City
Newspaper, in 1941. The name is very appropriate for this block, due to
the double star points this one has in it.
block starts with making two different looking sets of flying geese.
And then making half square triangles for preparing for the building of
Once all the flying geese are made you then sew them together to make them into one unit.
The half square triangles are then combined with 2 1/2" squares to makethe outer points of the block.
assemble the unit into one block you lay the point units on the four
corners and the flying geese in between the point units. The very
center is a 4 1/2" square.
finished the block looks like the block above. Two more blocks and
then it will be time to work on making the quilt top. I cant wait to
see the final product.
currently working on a series of blogs on making the "Let It Snow
Man!!" Applique Pattern. I hope to have them out next week for you to
Live, Inspire, and Create!
