Aurifil BOM

I am finally caught up with making all the Aurifil BOM blocks. The patterns are posted in blues, but I am using reds for my project. This is block #3 called Improv Star. I really like the piece of fabric in the block centre, which is from the Sweetwater line called "Mama Said Sew Revisited". I love that whole line of fabric and bought a big hunk of the "Vanilla Apple Red" to use for the backing on this quilt.

I string pieced squares and cut them in half for the star points.








This block joins the pile of the other 4 blocks, and I am ready now for June 15th when the next block pattern will be released.
I'm linking up to Lorna's "Let's Bee Social"...hop over to see her adorable chipmunks!

  3. The reds are gorgeous! All the little half square triangles in the basket block look nightmarish to piece, but it makes for a beautiful block!

  6. That would be a perfect block for the TO Batik Stars block exchange. Think about joining up (I'm planning on 2 sets). http://www.kelsew.info/to/tobesummary.html
