June Aurifil Designer BOM

The June Aurifil Designer Block of the Month was released a few days ago and I was so excited when I saw it, because ya know, I just love Star Blocks!!!   May is all about Red-Orange and  Sarah Maxwell created a super awesome star block called  Star Shine block.    What a fun Star!!!

And oh, don't I just love all of those points!!  I think that might be what draws me back to Star Blocks again and again, I just love the look of a pretty point :)  I tried to fussy cut the giant astrick in the center, but I only had a charm square and needed a 4 1/2" square from it, so I didn't have a lot of wiggle room.  So it isn't perfect, but it sure is fun, right ;)

I used my Aurifil 2245 Red-Orange thread as a guide for picking fabrics.  And I have to say, I was pretty suprised how little Red-Orange fabrics I have in my scrap drawers.  I assumed I would have plenty, but I acutally had to cut into some Denyse Schmidt yardage I had.  I wish I would have had a few more fabric choices as the block blends a little more than I would like, but it is still super fun!!!

So that is my Aurifil June Block!!!  You can find Sarah's fantastic pattern for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Sarah's  interview.     And if you make your own Star Shine Block, be sure and enter a picture of it at Pat's blog ;)  Every entry  is eligible to win a Large Aurifil Thread Kit!!!!!  

Half way through the rainbow and so loving it!!!  Can't wait for next month's block ;)  

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. Love your choice of fabrics and that asterisk looks great to me. It's cool how you used that same fabric all around the block. I agree--your points are really pretty :)

  2. Oh Melissa, good grief, this block is adorable
    I love the fabrics you picked and look at this. Just one of the nicest blocks ever!
