Barn Star Sampler QAL – Month 9 Tips

By September 4, 2023October 5th, 2023barnstarsamplerqal, blog

Welcome back for month 9 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along that I am doing in conjunction with the Fat Quarter Shop. This is the last of the mid sized blocks, so we are almost there!

{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 Peony Star (my favourite flower!) and this is what it looks like

There is actually a small border around this block which I didn’t want to have in my quilt, so I tweaked the sizing so that it would take up the whole of the block. If you subscribe to the sewalong and get my emails I have put the changed sizing in there.

Block A fabric pull is Tula pinks and greens

And block B has some Everglow hippos!

As I haven’t been feeling so well for the past couple of weeks, I used the Fat Quarter Shop’s foundation papers for both the Half Square Triangles and the square in a square – less thinking required!
