Star BOM #3

I finished my third Star Block of the Month. It turned out nice, but I ended up re-working the center. Originally, I choose black for the background of the pinwheel. After constructing it, I felt the dark tone was too much, especially compared to the first 2 blocks. So I swapped the black out for smoky grey. Another good thing about re-doing it was I somehow had my pinwheel spinning backwards on the first attempt. Oops! Now my pinwheel is conforming to the pattern.


  1. Greetings from EGYPT,
    i loved ur blog
    i hope to make me something like u did lol
    hope be a frinds
    c u
    bye bye

  2. I really like the grey in your block. I think the finished quilt will be stunning! (I'm partial to brights and saturated colors instead of the bland colors so popular right now.)

    I sure know what you mean about the addicting crumb blocks. I've been going nuts using all those little pieces and uglies. I must have enough crumb blocks for 6 or 7 quilts by now!!

  3. I too like the grey better. The center pinwheel is really fun.

  4. Another great block. I think your quilt is really going to be striking

  5. Love your block Kristin. The colours you chose look so good together. I love the centre pinwheel. Hugs Linda
