Such exciting news!  On November 17th, Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers, will be released. Be sure to look for it at your favorite quilt shop or newstand.  I’m honored to be included in this wonderful publication. I can’t wait to see all the different blocks from other designers!

My block is based on a traditional Variable Star block. However, it has the illusion of overlapping star points.  It looks hard to make, but is made with only squares and triangles, believe it or not.

To enhance the illusion, I used color around the color wheel, from apple green and moving to raspberry.  Tone on tone batik fabrics work well in this colorful block.
