August Star Crazy

It always feels nice to have your Block of The Month blocks finished in the month they are released.
I usually print the patterns off at the beginning of the month, and then sense that "come play with me" haunting until they are completed.

We had 9 blocks for August Star Crazy.

Jan came over yesterday, and she always helps motivate me to stay on task with Star Crazy. Isn't it wonderful to have a friend to work with on a project? By the way, even though Jan doesn't have a blog or post of her progress, she has completed all of her blocks so far.

There were 3 Pinwheel Stars

3 Shadow Stars

And 3 Evening Stars.
Usually, each month we make a large stack of 1/2 square triangles that will eventually be used in the construction of the outside border.
Did you notice that this month we only made 4? They look a little lonely sitting all by themselves.

This 12 month journey with The Quilt Show is a lot of fun.
I often have people e-mail me, asking if they can join us in the making of Star Crazy.
Yes! We would love to have anyone join in with us!
As a reminder, Star Crazy is The Quilt Show's Block of The Month. In order to download the patterns, you need to be a member of The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. If you are not a member already, it's very easy to join
