Do you like this block?  I fell in love with it.  Maybe because it’s applique, I don’t know, but I want to make more of these blocks.  I saw this block, as well as many others that I’d like to make, in Fat Quarterly’s book Shape Workshop for Quilters.  This block is the Nordic Star block. The pattern for the Nordic Star Quilt is also included in the book.  The quilt isn't made up of only these blocks, but uses a string of them across the width of the quilt.  I think I'll have to make it.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Quilters Road Trip is being held during the months of April, May, and June.  Twelve area shops are participating.  You get a chance to win a $25 gift certificate each month at each shop.  Also available will be new projects, patterns and giveaways.  Stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and get your passport for only $5.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
