Barn Star Sampler QAL - Block 1

It's Month 1 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along and I am just so excited to share my first set of blocks!!!  Thanks to Fat Quarter Shop' for hosting this awesome quilt along, I can tell already this is going to be a favorite quilt of the year :)    On the last Friday of each month I will be sharing my new Barn Star Sampler blocks, and this month we are starting out with Block 1 :)  

I am planning to make my Barn Star Sampler 100" x 100" square, so that is why I made 3 blocks instead of 2.  And each block is made in color from my Rainbow of Ombre goodness!!!   This month's Block 1 is made . . . 

in Blue 

Purple  (my favorite :)  

and Teal

And these Diamond Star Blocks were so much fun to make!!!  Talk about lots and lots of points to line up!!!  I just loved seeing them come together and am already looking forward to next month's star block :) 

So are you joining in the quilt along star fun as well??  Be sure to share all of your Barn Star Sampler progress on social media with #BarnStarSamplerqal and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Block 1  for lots more Barn Star Inspiration!!!   Oh, and be sure to check out the comments, because there have been lots of questions asked and your questions most likely are in there too ;)  

And that's it for Block 1 - The Diamond Star Block in the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along!!!!      

Thanks for popping in today ;)  Have a Happy Quilting Day!!

  1. Love your star blocks! Your colors and fabric are perfect! Is your whole quilt going to be done in the same fabric line?

  2. The purple is my favorite too. I do like the blue as well. Great choice of fabrics.

  3. Loving your blocks.. and wow, three! That is awesome... these blocks were not quick. Yours look gorgeous and can't wait to see how these progress as the year goes by!

  4. Your blocks are beautiful, Melissa!! Have fun with the quilt along!

  5. Just beautiful! Will you be using the same layout for your 100x100 quilt?


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
