Modern Block Monday/Stash Play - Sherbet Stars

I'm a part of an online Canadians Quilt {Bee} this year. I worked with most of these fabulous women in the Carmine Group of the Simply Solids Bee last year so I'm thrilled that we're going to keep going.

We're expanding into prints this year. Gulp! Having focused so much on solids the past few years, I find prints a little intimidating; I have a hard time seeing the 'true colour' of a print. Solids are way easier. But it's time to get out of my comfort zone, right?

Jaclyn asked for a star(s) block this month in this beautiful Frosted Heights palette from Design Seeds:

I had no idea what I wanted to do until I saw Dominique's fabulous wonky star block (tutorial). Wonky's good! I thought I'd try two stars in mine though.

I used the large blue floral from the Flea Market Fancy line for the centre of both stars because it had all the colours from the palette. It was a fun block to make and it reminded me of the Stash Plays I used to do.

I hope Jaclyn likes it!


  1. Those stars are so cute! You chose great fabrics for the color palette.

  2. Your stars looks lovely! I like your color palletes - I have to go deeply in your blog to find how do you do it. It is very inspiring. Thanks.

  3. I like the idea you have going there with the Quilt Bee. I might start something similar with my "real life" quilt group. Love your star block and I think you used prints beautifully.

  4. Sweet! Love the palette and the block! Oh my, Stars!

  5. Don't be silly prints are your friend! You are doing quite well so far--I'd be wholly impressed to receive this as a bee block!

  6. Very pretty, love the stars against the neutral background.
