A box of fabric arrived from Marcus Fabrics. I start to hyperventilate when I see a Marcus box on my doorstep. The fabric is called Loire Valley by Karen Stiles. I stared, petted, folded and refolded the fabrics for two days.
Then I made this block.....my first attempt at half of an 8-point star. I took my time, and the seams lined up beautifully. Before I began, I read several tutorials online, and in books. I came up with a couple of hints of my own that I will share with you in a tutorial. Those "pointy bits" as Quilt Sue would say, can be a little tricky.
My focus will be from this side of the palette.
