Blocks from Weeks 4 and 5.

Good progress is being made by my students in the Tuesday classes. Soon I will be sharing finished quilts. Some total beginners have produced beautiful quilts to a very high standard and I am very proud of them all.

Week 4 was one of my favourite blocks - Liberated Stars. The points of the stars are free pieced so that you never get two stars the same. I particularly like it when the stars are all made using the same background fabric so that the stars appear to be 'floating' on the quilt.

Week 5 was Flying Geese - such an important block in many quilts so I decided I needed to include it but decided that we would make the folded version which is only made from rectangles and squares.

Even this last one was quite easy to make using folded flying geese units.

Love the colors


Hi Janet - those quilts are gorgeous, such bright cheery colours. I think you have to be brave about colour and try different combinations - they often give unusual results, like your 'floating' star. (p.s. am from Doncaster, but living in flippin' Norfolk now!).
