Modern Block Monday - Scrappy Asterisk

Happy Family Day for those in Ontario! This week's block is the Scrappy Asterisk block by Michelle of City House Studio. It was a little detour from the Modern Blocks book, but so worth it! I love this block too! My photo is a little skewed, but the block is straight in real life. Eight weeks in to this Modern Block Monday thing and I think I may becoming a block person. Can't say for sure yet, but doing one of these a week agrees with me so far.


Completed Modern Blocks to date:
Next week's block will be another one by Angela Pingel of Cut to Pieces, Binary. Looks fun!

  4. I like that! I can't tell the colours but even in monochrome appearance it is very cool!

    An asterisk block is my first block on the Craftsy.com monthly block tutorial, though I admit I'm being delayed by waiting for a nice ruler to enable me to cut my strips and pieces! On your block the lines of the asterisk seem to stop short of the edge of the background, where in my pattern the lines run right to the edge ... How do you do it like in your block?

    I like designs like this where I can see the asterisk against the contrast of the background :)
