Hi friends! I’m so excited to introduce Holladay Star, block #18 in the Summer Sampler 2016. This is the last (of 3) blocks that I designed for the sampler [the other two are Sugarhouse and Piccolo Park], and a fun take on a traditional star block.
If you don’t love curves, or they make you nervous, repeat after me: “If Katie can make this, I can make this.” But seriously, the pattern gives you a little bit of leeway, and once you sew and trim the quarter curve blocks, you are good to go!
I mocked up a few different color combinations/color placement examples for you–happy sewing!
This is the example from the block mockup–Lee’s block will look something like this
Fun to see an ombre block, and it’s reverse
This one almost gets rid of the star entirely–it is similar to Lee’s Trail Crossing block, with a twist.
Have you seen the great blocks on the instagram hashtag #summersampler2016?Make sure to check them out!
