Description

Yay, another fabulous star block was chosen by +Hawkfan for our March block! What I love about this block she's chosen is that 1)it's a star 2) it's scrappy but not too much since each block is done in the same colorway and 3) and it looks great in every color. Audrey said we could do the star in low volumes which just adds a whole new dimension. Great choice Audrey!!

I am definitely going to make my own quilt using this block. I just have to decide if it's going to be a sweet baby quilt or finally make a red and white quilt.

3.01.14  This block was just so much fun I had to make another one. I chose purple just to add to the ROYGBIV theme.

oooooh, so pretty, Terry! Love the fabrics you chose!

True

Love this block and I so agree that this one is now on my to do list!

Terryt1955

Caribousmom , Thanks!! I think half the fun of this block was digging around in one's stash and finding out just how many prints you have in one colorway. It definitely points out what colors you buy a lot of!

Terryt1955

True You have so many wonderful star quilts already but I definitely think this block is a keeper. I like how you can control the wonkliness and make stars that look so great yet with a minimum of effort.

True

Terryt1955 as you know I do not do wonky very well (I even tried for Audrey and mine still aren't very wonky!) But this is my go to way to make stars as it is so easy and yes you can control how they look. Well unless you are me and then you cannot make them wonky even when trying;-) (and thank you for compliment about my quilts...one cannot have too many stars;-)

HawkFan

Oh Terry I LOVE the colors and fabrics!! This will go so well with the others coming my way. Now I just have to wipe this goofy smile off my face. I'm glad you had fun with this. Looking forward to what you decide to make with this block

Terryt1955

HawkFan Glad you love it. I think I'm just as excited as you seeing all these beautiful blocks come in.

Cute, cute, cute; even if it is orange. hehehe Love the little leaf fabric. Hey, two weeks!!!

True

Awesome purple block!!!

Skynme

I wanted to do a purple block so badly, but I didn't have enough purple fabrics. I love your block!!

Terryt1955

Quilt455 It does look orange but only because I took it at night. Not that I didn't think about making an orange one. I actually have a wide collection of that color thanks to Wendy's conversion! This one is a golden yellow...

Terryt1955

True Thanks, I just had to work some purple into HawkFan 's quilt! Love making this block!

Terryt1955

Skynme Thanks! Sounds like its time to go shopping!

Skynme

Terryt1955 I cant right now, I am still on budget restriction for fabric....its awful! It makes me sad when I see all of the beautiful fabric I want to buy...hopefully very soon I will be able to start buying again.

Miss Terry, I love the purple dots in your star. I knew purple is your color.

HawkFan

OK, I saw your project and the purple star and I thought I'd lost my mind. I would have sworn you'd made a yellow-orange star. Then I read further and realized you'd made another one! Wow I'm so lucky to have such fantastic bee mates! I'm a big fan of purple!!

Readerowl

Both of these are great!

Caribousmom

Love that purple one, Terry - and it is only fitting since you love that color so much! I thought about purple, but my scraps are pretty slim in that colorway!

Terryt1955

Thanks everyone ( Caribousmom , True , Quilt455 , Readerowl ). I didn't realize my passion for purple was so known! I promise I don't wear a red hat YET.

So glad you love the new one HawkFan !

Terryt1955

Oh yeah, I'm making your Nutella trifles today for Sunday dinner!

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 Yum - let me know how they come out!

Terryt1955

Well I know already that I made the brownies too thick so we will all go into insulin shock! I'll have it perfected by March 14th.

Quilt455

yummy!!!!!

Okay there's rich and then there's RICH.This is the perfect recipe for the chocolate junkie. It needs either a pot of tea or a pitcher of milk to accompany it but oh so good!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 These are the kind of recipes I "share" with my book club. I want to try them out but don't want a bazillion calories hanging out at my house with just me and hubby. They all know their low-cal, low-carb diets will get a break for the evening

Terryt1955

HawkFan For sure you can't leave these hanging around the refrigerator! But they were very good indeed! Thanks for the recipe and I think I'll be repeating it for when I go to Wendy's house.
