And when you take 4 blocks and rotate them you create not 1, but 2 star patterns. So fun!! I made this "A Study in Quilting" quilt for the magazine and you can find it in the Designer's Gallery on page 13.
I used a layer cake of Kate Spain's Cuzco and lots of different neutral solids for the background. This block would also be really great for some serious scrap busting!!
Since the block design was all about my favorite types of piecing units, I decided to quilt it with some of my favorite quilting designs. I did a mixture of swirls, paisley's, and pebbles. It was so much fun. The pebbles worked great for filling in some of those hard to get to spaces :)
