Star block for Astronomical Quilts! Block Challenge

I've never been particularly fond of making star blocks, but this one for the Astronomical Quilts! Block Challenge was easy to foundation piece.  I'm pleased that I'll be able to get it in the mail well before the August 1 deadline.

And because I can't get enough of the charming churn dash blocks my Lucky Bee-mates have been sending me, I made a mini block to sneak into my Dear Jane quilt.  (That's one fewer block I'll have to applique!)


  1. I love your star block! I really need to plan on and send it....

  2. Thanks, all. I included the NYC fabric as a little wink because, as you all know, we can't see any stars here!

  3. What an excellent star pattern!

  4. One of my favorite star blocks I've seen. Great job.
