I suppose it is no wonder that each of us have had our own connection to astronomy over the years working in the field in various ways. My oldest has asked for another star quilt so here we go on an adventure to the stars together.
As I shared with you when I introduced this Block of the Month a few weeks ago I am making two versions of this quilt. This is my first version of Block 1 which I have named Sirius for brightest star in our night sky.
My second version is going to be a baby quilt.
I always love seeing what my pattern testers come up with too...
I am starting us off this month with some video's of how I made my block. I walk you through all of my tips and tricks for making all aspects of Block 1.
Join me as I show you my method for making Flying Geese. I demonstrate the use of the Bloc Loc Ruler in trimming these to size. The wonderful folks at Bloc Loc are providing one free ruler for my giveaway which you can learn more about at the end of this post.
There are some things that will make sewing the block together easier and I share these in this last video.
I am always so excited when we start a new BOM.
I can hardly wait to see your versions of this block. The best place to share photos with me is via my facebook pages. There is a public one found here:
and/or my private group page found here:

To be entered you must leave a comment here on my blog. It is always sad when I have to choose a different winner because they did not comment here first.
So in the comments just say "hi" and/or let me know what you are doing to stay busy these days. In the online world your comments really make my day!
Thanks for sewing along with me and may the stars shine brightly for you.
