    Hi everybody! I have gotten so many nice comments and compliments on the "Star Block Patterns and Some Other Ideas" tutorial, that I decided to post some pictures of some of the star blocks that I made from those patterns. I love star blocks. They are my favorite. Hope you like them.

    The top star is the Northumberland Star. It was my 22nd star to be made. 6-27-09 The bottom star is called "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too". It was my 27th star block. I made it on 6-28-09.

    These are the 20th and 21st blocks that I made. I loved the Missouri Star but it was a paper piecing pattern. I don't paper piece. But I really wanted to make one, so I did, without paper piecing. I just made it the same way I make every other block. It turned out really great anyways.

    I love your stars so much and am now working on my 3rd Carpenter's Star from your directions, only I have now enlarged the 2nd 2 to a 32 inch block.. It is my favorite, too, but I love them all since I have learned to do stars. I can't get enough of them now. Thank you for sharing and thanks again for the directions you posted.
