Star In A Star Quilt Block

 One of my quilting goals
for 2013 
is to
finish up!
I am determined to be
more focused and 
complete as many 
UFO's
(unfinished objects)
as possible.
Last year I worked on 
Jackie's 
Did a great job keeping up
(even made 2 blocks most months :)
until the final block in September.
Now, it's time to pull out my Kaffe fabrics
and get going again.
 I really love block 12
Star In A Star
designed by the
very talented Sarah Fielke
*free pattern and tutorial
offered HERE
 And because this block is so much fun to make,
I pulled out more Kaffe fabrics and constructed two versions.
 My quilt is going to be a little larger than the original design by Jackie.
As I've laid out all of the blocks, I needed one
 more for the setting. 
I went back to the instructions and made another
designed by
my friend Sherri McConnell (A Quilting Life)
With all of the blocks now complete,
I've promised myself to 
stay focused
and place them in their final setting 
right away.
I'll keep you posted.

It is my own humble opinion that one can't go wrong with blocks made from Kaffe fabrics! I have made several, I love them all, and your blocks are gorgeous!

looking forward to seeing the finished quilt! I made a star within stars quilt once - different pattern but gave that one away. Maybe another later sometime

I really love the dark gray background on your star in a star! Any idea what that is? A Kaffe?
