This summer is really flying by! I usually get so busy in the summer that I fall behind on my sewing projects, but am trying to at least keep up with this block of the month! There are only two more blocks left in Pat Sloan’s Mystery Block-of-the-Month through Free Quilt Patterns.
I'm using The Potting Shed collection by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics for my quilt. After sewing this block together I wish I would've added more contrast so you can see the center star more, but I'm using it as a quilting challenge. I think with the right machine quilting, I can help this star stand out.
I pieced this block in the early morning under bright sunlight, so even if the star isn't the most obvious, I think this block still shines!
There's plenty of time to catch up if you're just joining the block of the month! Making these blocks is a highlight of each month, so I hope you decide to quilt along with everyone! (See my previous blocks here.)
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram @lindsmayland to connect more!
