Barn Star Sampler – Month 7

Welcome back for month 7 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along that I am doing in conjunction with the Fat Quarter Shop. We are half way through the sewalong and because we did the hard yards of the big blocks first up, our quilt blocks are starting to look awesome together!

{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’s block is the Friendship Star and this is what it looks like

My fabric choices of course are not that pale and quiet!!

I am tweaking the cutting from the book to use the Fat Quarter Shop paper piecing pads for the square in a square and oversizing my flying geese and doing four-at-a-time and trimming down with my bloc loc ruler.

My second block is going to be with these gorgeous purples

The Block 7 Tips and Tricks video shows how I select my fabrics as well as giving tips on how to make the new to the sewalong House Block.

We love seeing your blocks in our Facebook Sewing and Quiltalong Group as well as on Instagram just use the hashtag #barnstarsamplerQAL and feel free to tag me @said_with_love
