Recently, Jayne from Twiggy and Opal , asked for pattern testers for a new block pattern she had created, Star Thistle. I love Jayne’s work so I quickly raised my hand to try it out!
Her pattern was very well written and easy to understand. Here are the fabric and pattern pieces I started with.
I made the little pieces for the middle first.
I like the way she blunted the tips of the pattern pieces. This makes it easier to line up with the other paper pieced bits.
And the back side.
And here is the completed block!
Pretty cool, huh? I think there could be some awesome secondary designs if you made more blocks. I decided to add 2 1/2 inch strips to the sides, quilt it and make a pillow.
If you would like to make one or more of these blocks, you can get the pattern for FREE in Jayne’s Craftsy Store.
Have a great day!
