Alright, it's been awhile! I was on vacation, and then school started (for me, anyway, everyone else seems to be starting next week).
But, while I was on vacation, I finished up the Celestial Star (paper piecing pattern by Diane Bohn of from blank pages) I was working on.
It's the 12 inch block (and I attribute the wonkiness to me entirely - I accidentally reversed a few of the arms). The pattern comes with templates for a 12", 18", and 24" block. And it's a great pattern, the block certainly looks complex, but the pattern makes it easy! And I really appreciate a choice in sizes.
Some people commented on this picture on instagram, saying how unique it looked, but I just sketched it based on other blocks I liked in the #celestialstarqal hashtag, so... who can say what is unique? The pattern is amazingly versatile! You should browse that hashtag, my friends, some amazing blocks in there.
I made this star for a Round Robin quilt (through the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild so here's a picture of that quilt laid out on the floor of my guest room in the middle of the night:
Now it's in someone else's hands for the month.
