Brenda's week 8

I'm happy with this star, although I didn't follow the method in the instructions either. I attempted to create the corner blocks with a HST method, but couldn't wrap my head around how to make a four-patch that would have the right dimensions to cut in half diagonally. I see someone else has posted a link to a method and I'm going to check it out. I used more hand dyes to with the light marbled background to match the other blocks I've made for this Block Party. You can see I've been watching more than participating, but I'm learning something every week.

the colours work really well with the other blocks you're showing -- I like how you've introduced another colour (the pink) into the grouping of blocks, while unifying the colours from other blocks...

I really love it when we show all our blocks together...we are all making such neat progress. Your blocks are very striking and elegant.

Nice block and you are going to have a great quilt to put together in the future. I'm looking forward to see it.
