You will be making half of Anna Maria Horner’s Spinning Stars block. The pattern calls for templates but some creative soul made a paper pieced version which is what we’ll be using.
I’ll provide the paper pieced templates which include a right and left side for each quadrant of the block. I am asking you to make 2 quadrants (requiring 4 paper pieced templates total). Sewn together, this will be roughly 9 ¾ x 18 ½. Please do not square up when finished.
Each paper pieced template has an A, B, and C section.
I’ll provide the fabric for the B section (as I want the entire block to have the same B fabric), but the other 2 sections should be scrappy jewel tones/saturated reds, yellows, oranges, pinks and purples (violets).
To avoid bulky seams, sew the A and B piece together 1st on the right side and the B and C piece together 1st on the left side. I think this will help the pieces nest together when sewing the 2 pieces together.
I love this quilt by Blue Elephant Stitches, and it is definitely my inspiration!
