Classic meets Modern QAL: The Starflower - JULY!

7:17:00 AM

Hi all!

Happy July 1st (CANADA DAY!! Woot!!)!

It's a new month - and that means a new block for the Classic meets Modern Quilt Along here at Sew at Home Mummy!

Sew at Home Mummy

If you're just tuning in, the previous month's instructions are located in the right sidebar of the blog.

This month we'll be playing around a bit with the Starflower block - a really classic one, and in honor of July 4th, we just had to create a star!

Here are the instructions for this month's block:

The Starflower isn't a complicated block, but really quite simple - and really fast, especially if you're planning on improv-ing it and making it super wonky.

I've included two blocks for this month again - one in the traditional format, one in a super-mod, super-wonky composition.
The "Classic" Starflower
Crazy, wonky, "Modern" Starflower Block!

Whichever you decide, or however you decide to do it: have fun with it!!  I can't wait to see what you link up this month.
