I love that this star block looks like it has set in points but in reality, Kate Spain has designed "Joyful Julie" to only look that way. In reality it's all half square triangles and 2-1/2 inch squares sewn and trimmed to look that way. It was a breeze to make and with the fabric from Edyta Sitar, it was a joy!
Block #8 as mentioned is called "Joyful Julie" and Kate says "My aunt Julie keeps smiling no matter what".
Above are pictures of #8, all 8 blocks so far, the picture of the pattern and the last picture is the finishing kit and on the right is the pile of the left over fabric....enough to make a small quilt I think!
I'll be back during the week with other updates.
