We have just finished Month 8 of the Barn Star Sampler Quiltalong! This month we are showing you our Farmer’s Star block.
You can read more about the sewalong and how we at Said With Love are doing it (emails with hints and tips for the blocks at the beginning of the month, block reveals at the end of the month) on the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along page https://saidwithlove.com.au/sew-alongs/barn-star-sampler-sewalong/ And it is never too late to join in the fun!
I tweaked things a little bit this month with the fabric placement on my first block… I wanted to get a real cross look too this block.
My second block I stuck to the pattern with placement, and I am in love with this block – so pretty!
My first use of Tula Pink’s Nightshade Deja Vu (the pink cloud print in the corners) but it definitely won’t be the last! I am pretty much all out of Nightshade Deja Vu in the shop, but the Fat Quarter Shop still has some but grab it quick – there are some gorgeous fabrics in there!
I have also laid out ALL my blocks and tweaked where they are going to be in the final layout. I show you that in the video too!
You can watch my reveal video here
So now that I have my quilt all laid out, I have worked out what each fabric is going into all of the remaining blocks – now I am off to my sewing room to get sewing!
