My Version of Carolyn's Star

This is the block for week 46 of the Friday Block Party. It is called Carolyn's Star and is very similar to week 14th block, Cathy's Star. The instructions in Quilter's Cache are for both a 12-inch block and a 9-inch block. I decided to go for the 9-inch block because I have already made a lot of 12-inch blocks this year. But after I had cut all the fabrics I was having second thoughts. Those triangles were very small! I wondered if I should change gears and make the 12-inch block, but because I didn't want to waste all that cutting and all that fabric, I carried on with the 9-inch one.


I think it turned out okay, but those little triangles made for a lot of work for such a small block.

Holy COW. I'm impressed. That is something. Tiny blocks take a lot of time.

I've never seen a star within a star like that, up in one corner. Very cool.

You could use both 9" and 12" blocks in the same quilt. You could also make 6" blocks and they would all work together. I have made several quilts with modules that fit together.

Mimi is not talking but I know her thoughts. And I agree.
