July and August Blocks

I worked hard today to finish up blocks for both Susan and Mary. I hated that I was tardy in sewing the star block for my friend, Suz. I am pleased with the way it turned out, though, and hope that it fits in well with her vision.
Scrappy sewing is my "thing" so making up these cute half square triangles for Mary really was a delight. Hope you like them, Mary!
Both will be in the mail tomorrow!


  1. I love my Star block! Thank you! And I'm like you - It's fun making scrappy blocks too!

  2. Oh my goodness! I love them! I am loving that pale pink background. Thank you, thank you!

  3. Carla, these are both terrific! Your star has lots of punch and pow in all the right places, and you inspire me to get going on Mary's blocks. Beautiful!

  4. I love the star block on this post and was wondering if you happen to know the name of it or know where I can get a pattern for it. It is a beautiful block.

    1. Patty, since I can't find your email address, I'm answering here and hope that you see it. Unfortunately, the paper-pieced star is from a older magazine.

    2. Thanks for the response. If you run across the magazine I would love to have the name to try to find the pattern. It is really beautiful. My email is

      Thanks again
