Hi and welcome Inside the Studio.
I’m back with another fun block for the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. This month the focus is lucky charms and I’ve got a Star Bright applique block to share with you.
What is the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop?
Each month, a group of designers get together and create blocks around a specific theme and color palette. We then share the block patterns with you for FREE. It’s a great way to meet new designers, try different quilting techniques and have some fun along the way.
Lucky Charms – Star Bright
The theme for February is Lucky Charms. And the color palette includes several yellow, pinks, greens and orange. Here is a look at the colors all of the blocks will be featuring. You can find this color palette and more at Design Seeds. It’s a great resource for color inspiration.
Wishing on a star was one of the first things that came to mind when I think of lucky charms. It made me thinks of the familiar nursery rhyme – Star Light, Star Bright. Remember that one?
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
My block is called Star Bright. This is an applique quilt block. I had so much fun last month with applique that I thought I’d take another try at it. For this block, I wanted to have a shining star that seemed to glow. Here’s the drawing of the block and the sample that I made. I still need to do the applique stitching around the block. Check out my Instagram feed later this week to see the complete block.
You can get the pattern for Star Bright for free. Download your copy today and have fun making this quilt block.
If you make my Star Bright quilt block, or any of the other participating designers blocks, be sure to tag #QuiltBlockMania on social media so we can all see the fun blocks being made.
