My week 5 for Star Surround QAL

Yay the end of the Star Surround QAL is nearly here!  To find out more information about the Star Surround QAL, please visit Melissa’s blog Happy Quilting.

This week’s assignment is to build the block surround.  I was too eager to see how the block would look like that I went ahead and finished the block before I could take pics of this week’s assignment.   Good to see other quilters also completed their  star surround block :).

LOL must remember not to choose prints with lines in them.  It shows where I haven’t cut straight enough and it sure made it harder with placement for the star’s surround part of the block.

Not perfect but I am pretty happy with the results :).

Two of the chosen fabric above is Veranda Screen Print by Amanda Murphy for Robert Kaufman.  The purple print is D#11500 and the yellow print is D# 11485.

    • Thanks Melissa :). Looking forward to next week’s assignment and hoping there is some suggestion on borders for the blocks/quilt :).

  2. It’s pretty simply
