Midland Star // Block #9 // Summer Sampler 2017

Midland Star Final

This is Midland Star, Block #9 of the Summer Sampler 2017. This is a fun one with a few basic techniques–hourglass blocks and diamond in a square piecing, along with triangles in the corner.

My 6” version is a little different, and is meant to join 2 other 6” blocks I have made as test blocks. It looks quite different like this [wild prints add to that, I think!]
Midland Star 2My favorite part each week is seeing the wide variety of blocks that people make–everything from black backgrounds, to solids, to vibrant prints, to rainbow color schemes, to very limited palettes–you can check out the blocks on Instagram under the hashtag #summersampler2017.

Happy sewing!
