Barn Star Sampler – Month 2

By February 6, 2023barnstarsamplerqal, blog

Welcome back for month 2 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along that I am doing in conjunction with the Fat Quarter Shop.

{Please note there may be affiliate links in this blog – I get a small amount from FQS, your price is no different. This helps me to continue doing these sewalongs with you!}

This month is the Christmas Star block which, thankfully, is a little easier than last month’s block!

Even though it looks deceptively simple, I still managed to make a huge BOOBOO whilst I was making it which you can have a good laugh about whilst watching this month’s video! Like how long does it take me to NOTICE!?!

It isn’t too late to join in the sewalong fun, there is all the information about how to join in on our Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along page. The sewalong emails have lots more tips and hints and links to extra downloadables than appear here in the blog.

I had fun choosing from my Tula Stash for this month’s block – one pinky block, one minty green block coming up!

There are quite a few flying geese in this month’s block and I have found (with lots of trial and error!) that this way of making flying geese is the most accurate for me.

Can’t wait to start seeing your blocks appearing on social media with the hashtag #barnstarsamplerQAL and feel free to tag me @said_with_love on Instagram!
