Pentagon Week, Day Two
I shared my steps to this lovely creation last Spring using the Spellbound Collection by Windham Fabrics. I upsized a block I created for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine a few years ago. Do you remember this block?
I truly became enamored with the English Paper Piecing of pentagon shapes. In fact, I began putting them into the kits for my students when I teach those workshops. Here is another ring of pentagons (for a wreath) that I made using 1-3/4" pentagons and the Kaffe Fassett Sunburst fabric. I shared this last May.
I added a 5-Pointed Star to the center and then appliquéd everything to a background square. The block is 13-1/2" and is waiting for some companion blocks or strips to be made into a quilt of some sort. I just pulled the block out of the closet and now I'm going to try and make some more of these using the same fabrics. . . if I still have some!

And one more wreath. This one was made with blenders for the pentagons and some Kaffe Fassett for those star points.

I'm going to hunt down my EPP workshop supplies to see what I have in process. These blocks are looking for a permanent place in a quilt and I've got to find some companions.
Here's a sneak peek of what I mentioned at the top of this page: my Pentagon Wreaths using the Spellbound Collection. Click the link to see the steps. Then, click HERE to see how those wreath blocks morphed into the quilt center. Here's one of the 6 blocks I used to create the quilt center, but it's not a typical arrangement. Do you remember?

See you tomorrow with the completion of this quilt top. Remember, it was all done using only fat quarters (and the 6 panel yardage for those centers).
