Hello Friends! I think it’s about 50/50 from your comments about whether you liked the green/red or the blue/burgundy berry print fabrics from my post “A Tale of Two Colorways” a few days ago.
And here is a sneak peek to show you what I have done with the blue/burgundy berry print. By the time you read this post, I would have made close to 30 star blocks of different variations. Stay tuned for future reveal.
I have shared with you before I am not passionate about piecing. When I do piece, nothing thrills me more than piecing star blocks. You can see in the following the star blocks I have pieced in the past:
The reason I like making star blocks is because they draw my thoughts heavenward. I cannot help but hear in my mind the words “I see the stars” from the great hymn “How Great Thou Art” by Carl Boberg sung in Mandarin. Whenever I hear that hymn, I am prompted to step away from my immediate concerns of life, and just focus on the bigger picture for a moment…
What are your feelings toward star blocks? Are star blocks some of your favorite blocks to make? Do star blocks invoke any special thoughts in you?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a lovely day.
