Blocks for Lynn

I had planned on doing a zigzag block since I hadn't done one before but when I was looking through my quilt books this morning I came across a cool star pattern block in this book.

I used the same method as I did on my Brushfire quilt blocks - just on a smaller scale.

I also copied Jacquie and Carissa and made a stacked coin block too - I loved all the fabrics and it seemed like a great way to use them.



Thanks for the freedom Lynn - I really love that about this quilting bee...it's pushing me out of my "comfort zone" of sewing and getting me to try new things.

oooh...these are great. i especially like how you placed the fabrics in your star block. so, i'm thinking we might be a bit coin quilt obsessed???

this is so cool! I love how you did the stars within a star...and you guys are killing me with your coin quilt blocks. I might just have to make one too

Both of these are fantastic. And the bonus coin quilt block is definitely inspiring.

I love the stacked coin quilt! And the star one is AMAZING. I made a couple for the brushfire quilts, but seeing little ones together in a block really makes me SO happy! Thank you!!
