Southern Star blocks

The next block in our Summer Moon journey is what Carrie calls the Southern Star. This is a beautiful star block, and was very easy to construct. It's 90% half-square triangles, and the other 10% are just squares!

It's fun to play with the placement and decide if you want total scrappy happiness, or if you want it a bit more controlled . . . 

I decided I liked that last arrangement the best, so then it was time to sew up all three!

The next block will be the Checkerboard, and I will have some construction tips!

Till next time,


  1. I too like the layout you chose for the stars. You have a nice mix of orange fabrics. I can’t wait to see all these blocks together in a quilt.
