Shot Cotton Week: Day 2
This is my South Carolina Star block. It's designed to be sewn as a foundation pieced pattern.

Here is a little more info on what shot cottons really are:
Artisan Cotton by Another Point of View is a beautiful cross-dyed quilter's weight cotton that acts as a solid but with a zing! The rich, saturated colors truly pop and are simply spectacular. These solids are a mixture of pretty pastels, zesty brights and rich neutral tones.
These fabrics also have a good feel (hand) and are just as "weighty" as good quality quilter's cotton. That's what I like! Look at those yellow/gold threads that are woven with blues to get this green. The fabric is NOT a flat color.
