Star Play

The Flying Stars quilt is coming along slowly but surely.  Saturday night I had an idea to do some "Crafted Appliqué" on it using the method in Lara Buccella's book.  Here are those blocks:

The first two had the half orange peel pieces added to existing blocks.  Then the muse said "What if?" and the third block was created.  You may notice that there are no flying geese on this one. But the orange peel halves create a different four pointed star.

Here are all of the blocks so far:
There are nineteen of them so I need to make at least one more. and possibly more depending on the layout I decide on.
Here is one possibility that I am considering. I am just not sure I want to make that many quarter-square triangles.

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger"- I can not reply. Links in posts may be affiliate links for which I am compensated if you click through and purchase.

Love your "Star Play" - and I had to laugh - I spent yesterday making Quarter-Square Triangles for my "Five Star Plus 5" - maybe you need one of my LEFT-EZE Rule rulers - LOL - ;))

Love the Orange peel stars...adds a bit of interest and breaks up the design in a neat way!!!

I love these blocks. It will be a beautiful quilt no matter what layout you use.
(I tried to comment on your blog when you were showing the dyed fabrics--which were just gorgeous BTW---but my computer was acting up and wouldn't let me.

Your star blocks are so pretty. You've gotten very creative with them. They are going to make a nice quilt.
