Kansas City Star BOM #10

Starry HeavensToday, 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.

Block 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.

Kansas City City Star BOM #10The block starts with making two different looking sets of flying geese.  And then making half square triangles for preparing for the building of the block.

Kansas City City Star BOM #4Once all the flying geese are made you then sew them together to make them into one unit.

Kansas City City Star BOM #10The half square triangles are then combined with 2 1/2" squares to makethe outer points of the block.

Kansas City City Star BOM #10To 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.

Kansas City City Star BOM #10Once 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.

I'm 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 enjoy!

Live, Inspire, and Create!
