Description

For my month as queen I choose a wonky star block. The background should be in shades of blue and the star itself any one bright colour.
I can't wait to see what the ladies in my hive will come up with!

Update:
Beautiful, bright stars have begun to land in my mailbox.

I've decided on a design for the quilt top. I will make a sashing in Bella solid bright sky blue to unite all these colourful blocks and there will be a small (wonky) star at every corner.

I decided on Malka Dubrawsky fabrics for the smaller stars. I love the intense colours.
