Barn Star Sampler – Month 6

By June 5, 2023July 3rd, 2023barnstarsamplerqal, blog

Welcome back for month 6 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along that I am doing in conjunction with the Fat Quarter Shop.

This month’s block is the Moroccan Star and this is what it looks like

This month I decided it was finally time to switch up my backgrounds and use a darker colour instead of the pale grey I have used so far.

Tula Pink Everglow has arrived and I couldn’t wait to use the lion in this month’s green block and the dark grey fairy flake print with the minty green in it was just perfect for my background!

If you aren’t in Australia / New Zealand you can grab your Everglow from Fat Quarter Shop

I did do a small change when I started my cutting and the hippo print sat out this block and it was replaced with the awesome citrus tiny stripe print!

That is going to make a punch in this block!

And my second fabric pull was back to my favourite pinks and purples… this time using the Elephant print from Tula Pink Everglow

Watch this month’s video with tips and tricks on the sub components and I also do a tutorial on how to fussy cut the lion!
