My Siggy Block...

I love Brit Bee. 

All my wonderful friends helped make my Constellation quilt the stunner that it is, (Alison, I'll tell you about it some day!), and since then I have gone on to make more and more of Katy Jones's inspired stars.

The latest is for Susan's Brit Bee 2 month, asking for a star or stars on a charcoal background, it was a no-brainer for me.

So here is the latest, and sorry Susan I have kept you hanging all day to see this, but I have been finishing off a pair of 'thank yous', so actually you could just blame yourself (or Trudi!).


Susan added a second solid to all the fabric packs she sent out, which was perfect for the secondary star...


It will measure in at 24" and I used Madam Pings' super-duper, quick and easy trim-tastic method of getting those HSTs all nice and squared.  If you haven't seen Sarah's post over at Rhonda's, have a look!!  Honestly it works, and with the added luxury of a new rotary blade, (why oh why do I struggle on with a blunt one for so long, every time!?), this was effortless!

I hope you like it my friend - it will be winging its way to you with a load of other things very very soon, well Saturday, probably!

  3. Gorgeous! And you struggle with a dull blade because you're like me - delusional about how far you can eke out a blade safely and save your pennies for more fabric.

  11. This block is so magnificent. The charcoal border makes it pop and I'm glad you pointed out the secondary star, I didn't see it at first because I was so caught up with the overall effect of the block. Absolutely lovely!
