Wonky Star Block - trial for 4x5 {modern} quilt bee

I haven't chosen which block to do for the 4x5 {modern} quilt bee yet, so I thought I'd audition a few blocks in my colour choices ...

That way I end up with more blocks for the final quilt ... win win.

This one's yer trad wonky star block - 4.5 inch squares with 5" squares cut diagonally for the points ... easy peasy ...

Well ... I say that, but I did get a bit confused with my overs and unders! (I need to make a block at least twice before I really get it! LOL - I think it's the whole muscle memory thing)

The fabrics are a green/yellow shot cotton, Kona Canary, Laurie Wisbrun's Tufted Tweets, and some spoonflower prints of Laurie's Modern Whimsy collection ... The line is coming to RKaufman later in the year, so go to her etsy shop if you want to catch the colourways that didn't make it to the mix.

Berlin flea market findMy colour way for the bee is:

lemon/canary yellow

It's to go with my Berlin fleamarket fabric ...

apologies for foggy photos ... camera has forgotten how to focus ... grrr
