Calendar Girls August Project: Free Trade Stars

One day early, but that's better than late, right? Here is the 8th project in my 2016 Calendar Girls BOM. I have heard from several of you who are making these into baby quilts and what a stash you will have!

Free Trade Block is the August 12th block in my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar:

Free Trade Block, August 12
In the calendar it is a 16" block. For our project, the quilt finishes to 36" x 36".

And here's a newsletter with some tips and tricks to sew these triangles:

  1. This is one of my favorites. Thanks for doing this.

  2. Love this - stars and lot of HSTS - my kind of project.

  3. Thank you! I love this one. I'm trying to finish the borders on several baby quilts I made in July - Finished one on Saturday from 4 Idaho Stars, and I have one large Snail's Trail Star (which I know wasn't the calendar, but I had to try it!) and the July Star to go. Then I'll make this one. Most of mine have already gone to charity, though the February home one went to a friend. It's just fun to do these things. =)

  4. Such a beautiful, intricate pattern, I like the colours too!
