A Star is Born

This block is called Northumberland Star. It is this week's block on the Friday Block Party. I love star blocks and this one turned out really nice! But gosh was it ever difficult. I tried to follow the instructions on quilterscache, but finally gave up and just did my own thing. It is a 12-inch block, but it took me hours to complete. By 3:00am I only had half of it done. Would I have the patience to do this one again? I doubt it.

I also want to let you know about a give-away that Vicki at Felines and Fibre Arts is hosting. Go check it out. She has lots of great things to give away!

You are so good to keep up with the FBP. Your block looks great!

Huh. I can see the difficulty in that one. It's beautiful though, not doubt. And, as usual, you're painting with fabric. But for real, I do see the difficulty and I celebrate your achievement!!!

wow! Your points in that are perfect! No wonder it took you hours! And I love your color combo.. the pink and blue with the unexpected gold center.
