Galaxy of Stars Block of the Month 2015

Galaxy of Stars Quilt - 80" x 80"
I'm considering a Block of the Month for this blog based on this quilt. I have used it for classes and even an Atlanta quilt shop BOM. There are twelve 12" star blocks, four 6" star blocks (in the corners) and a GIANT 24" star block in the center. The Twisted Star in the center is very easy to cut and piece, I promise.

What say you, blog followers? Are you interested? I would start the first week in January with one of the 12" stars. Some of them require paper piecing. I assume you either know how to paper piece or can find resources online. I won't be able to walk newbies through that process.

Here's how it appeared in Quilt Magazine:

Galaxy of Stars as it appeared in Quilt Magazine 2006
All files are in Acrobat pdf. I will give yardage requirements in January. Each month I will offer tips for pre-cutting that month's patches. I also have a line drawing planning sheet for the 14 blocks.

The last month will be a whirl with the finishing and assembly information.

I've done all the work. Just need to tweak this for an online version.

Let me know if you're interested. Ask your friends to join in, too. I only want to be sure that this is not printed and then handed out willy-nilly (don't know Willy? He's my copyright protector and will hunt you down and . . . you get the picture).

Leave me a comment if you think you'd like to join the fun. This is not a club; you don't have to sign up. You can always remain anonymous. I'm just trying to get a head count of those who might want to take the plunge.

Of course, if you're impatient, you can buy the CD for $10, plus postage. But it's free if you are OK with one block a month!

  19. Remember, no one's counting how many blocks you make. You can skip the ones that have paper piecing (5 out of 14). And the LARGE center 24" star is all rotary cut. Collect the patterns as they appear and make them as you wish. This is NOT a club.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes please! I love star blocks and am always looking for new patterns to try. I'll see if I can get the on-line group I am in interested, too!

  33. Great looking quilt. I love stars. Since I have at least 4 quilts started, I may not get around to it right away, but I will collect the patterns. I really like the large 24" block, but I'm not sure I would want it that large. Could you please give instructions for a smaller block?
