PATTERN SHEET: star-sampler-quilt-block6
Hello! Geez, it’s been a while huh?! Apologies for being so out of touch these past few weeks… I’ve been working my (not so) little butt off and struggling to find the time and energy to get these block tutorials out to you!
But happy days, I’ve finally been given a few days off to get my life back into some sort of order! And first thing’s first, block 6 needed to be done!
I’m absolutely in love with this one! It’s called the Amish Star block and is such a little darling of a design! (BTW, is it pronounced Ay-mish or Arr-mish? I got no clue?) I’ve loved how I’ve been able to play around with fussy cutting the centre unit and adding pops of colour in the corners. Initially, I was going to make this block using just two fabrics – the usual background fabric and then just one black print from the Print Shop range. But I ended up changing it as I wanted to use more of the range throughout the blocks. So this is the colour-way I came up with and I’m sooo happy with it!
As always, everything you’ll need to know in regards to the measurement and cutting information as well as the fabrics* I’ve use to piece this block together are in the pattern sheet linked at the beginning of this post! If you would like to use a similar 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here: June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.
I can’t to share with you what I’ve got in store for block 7! It’s a nice simple easy one that I think you’ll enjoy making! (It’ll be a nice respite from all of the tricky blocks we’ve been making lately!) I’ll also be sharing another two fabrics from the Print Shop range that I haven’t used yet! One of them is my favourite print from the range!
Happy Sewing, Friends!
