Dreaming of Stars Blog tour!
What makes blenders so great? It's got to be the color. The deep saturated color, so versatile, so inviting. DREAM, the new line of blenders for Timeless Treasures, is just that. And tiny dots? Oh, I'm in love with the tiny dots!
Timeless Treasures asked us to design a 12" star block. I used Shannon's No-waste Geese tutorial to make a Sawtooth Star on the outside, and put a wonky log cabin in the center, what do you think?
Want to make this block? Here are the steps:
Shannon's tutorial to make flying geese for the star points.
3. Cut strips ranging from 1.5"-2" of all fabrics except the background.
this tutorial from Ellison Lane) and square it up to 6.5"
5. Lay out your patches and piece them together in rows. Press seams of top and bottom sections towards corner blocks. Press seams on the center section towards the log cabin.
Timeless Treasures is giving away 1/2 yd of EACH Dream color I used in this block to one lucky blog reader. (Taupe, Berry, Citrus, Grass, Teal and Royal). To enter, just comment on this post with your favorite quilt block pattern of the moment. I will choose a winner next Monday, 1/20. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win~
