Rose Star Week: Day 6

For some reason I have been enamored with these kites! I dug through my workshop box and discovered I had enough kites cut out to make two more of this block. I shared it earlier in the week.

Vintage inspired block using 18 kite shapes

 Here are the 3 fabrics that make up this block (not sure of a name). This is a 2015 Windham Fabrics collection called Flora.


I guess I must have cut all the fat quarters until nothing was left. But, it was my lucky day in that I was able to piece 2 more blocks. They measure 14-3/4" x 17" (that's because they form a hexagon which is not square). I rummaged in my stash and found this perfect yellow/lime green and cut 30 degree setting triangles. Here it is before my borders.


And I pulled another Windham fabric from last year, Grand Illusion (which I also made a Rose Star with) and used one of the border style prints. What do you think?

3 Block wall banner (or table runner): 26" x 54"

I plan to quilt it this week. It definitely has an Autumn feel about it. I may have one more concept to share tomorrow using these kite shapes. Hope you'll check it out if I do!

  2. Nice table runner. Love the outer border fabric. It sets the center off nicely.
