starry skies sampler :: block no. 10

i feel like i am nearing the end of the star-making process of this quilt. maybe its because i'm a little hesitant to use every last bit of my stash of miscellany or maybe its because i am starting to envision what these ten blocks will look like together, but i am hoping that my starry skies quilt will be done in time to hang in my little boy's nook before he arrives in the next month or so (talk about a deadline, sheesh). i might have one or two more stars up my sleeve but for now i think this variation on a bear claw block is a good stopping point.

while i have no idea what this block is really called, i saw the tutorial for piecing it on fat quarterly and thought it would be the perfect excuse to use as many prints from the miscellany line as possible. i wish i had been a little bit more careful when fussy cutting the house but i love love love seeing the different prints play off of each other and really come together as a collection.

maybe there will be another star appearing in this space next week, maybe i'll share the blocks that didn't make the cut but were so very inspiring, maybe i'll have the whole thing quilted - who knows, but i will see you next wednesday with an update. and hopefully before then with a sneak peek of a few projects that i have so ambitiously decided must be started now.


  1. I literally feel my heart pounding when I see that Miscellany. I love it! Your block (and the others, too) looks awesome!

  2. A very fitting finale, with all those prints together. I'll miss seeing new blocks!

  3. Wonderful block. I really love this fabric line and what you've done with it.
