Saturday Sampler #19

This week's Saturday Sampler block is an easy one from the Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine.

Block Name: Four Patch Star
Block Pattern Designer: Lynn Schiefelbein
Block Pattern Source: Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine (pg. 58)
It was quick and easy to sew but the annoying part of this block was all these extra leftover pieces. Except for the background and the centre squares, there is enough cut for a couple more blocks. But I want each block in my sampler quilt to be different, so I'll just put these triangles in the scrap bag and see if I can use them somewhere else.

Next Saturday will be my 20th sampler block, so I'll put them all up on the design wall and see how the this project is coming along!

  2. The block may have been easy to construct but gives a more complicated look. Good piecing job.

  5. I remember seeing that one in Quiltmaker magazine. It turned out so pretty and soft, I like the way the color placement gives it movement.

  7. I think I have that magazine...somewhere. That is a very pretty block! I will have to dig out the magazine, you've just given me an inspiration to use one of the blocks in the magazine as a replacement if I come across another "dumb" one in my block-a-day adventure!
