Block #10 (Blueberry Pie)
The Moccasin Block of the Month Club goes back to some traditional piecing for the September block.  Don't worry folks... there are quite a few pieces in this Blueberry Pie block, but you are in the home stretch! I love pretty much all variations of stars and starbursts.  This block is definitely included.  We'll work with stitch-n-flip blocks this month to simplify how many pieces are needed.
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

Broken Star Blocks

Aug 26, 2015

I've been busily piecing these warm and vibrant Broken Star blocks since school started up last week.  They are so me, it's unreal.  This is my perfect color palette. And modernizing a very traditional block with an ombre-style coloring, is..... well..... just me.  :) 

Funny, I showed my husband this fabric and pattern before I started sewing and his comment was "Isn't that exactly like that other quilt you just made?"  I, of course, scoffed.  This is fabric bundle (available here) is nothing like whatever other quilt you're thinking of.  And no, I haven't ever in my life sewn a Broken Star block before, so this is obviously very different.

I almost doubted my plan.  For a second.
And then I remembered he can't tell the difference between warm and cool colors.  I scoffed again.
I'm sewing these up into a sweet little mini.  By little mini, I do mean little.  This block finishes at 8".  So if you do the math, those are 1" x 2" geese and 2" finished hourglasses.

I'll show you more next week.  Happy sewing until then!
