Star Sampler Quilt (8): “Crystal Star”


This simple star is block n.8 for the Star-Sampler quilt-along (organised and hosted by Amanda Rolfe at 3and3quarters). I had to sew a second version of the pattern as the first fabric choice didn’t work quite well when put together. I’m still having trouble getting the flying-geese units to the correct size (and I can’t understand why I can get them to work in tiny piecing and not in the bigger versions!).

After auditing all the stars so far, I’m starting to change the colour combinations: the first ones were green-orange and blue-pink combos (with the violet exceptions), so I need to step out of that colour scheme and start using orange-blue and pink-green pairings. Perhaps, even throw in some green-blue ones, if there’s a pattern that allows for that.
