Block of the Month for April Meeting

This block is being brought to you by the lovely Kate Toney!!

She was unable to make it to our meeting because she is working at the quilt show in Daytona but she chose a fun block for spring.  We will be making Wonky Stars in bright fun beach colors and on sand colored backgrounds.

Here is your color inspiration:

And here are Kate's sample blocks.  She made three different sizes.

There are so many good tutorials for making these fun, scrap busting stars.  Choose whatever size you want.  Here are a few links to different sized blocks.

3", 6" and 9" Wonky Stars
5" Wonky Stars
6" and 12" Wonky Star
If you are feeling like being an overachiever you can make this big 20" triple wonky star!!
If you prefer a video tutorial check out this one.

I can't wait to see all the pretty beachy stars next month.

Be sure to stop in the Wandering Stitches exhibit at Quilt Week and tell Kate that we missed her at our monthly meeting.
