It's a new month for Quilt Block Mania! This month's theme is "Barn Blocks". While you might think you're going to see a variety of big ol' barns, we Quilt Block Mania designers have some something even better for you! We designed 19 different charming quilt blocks inspired by the colorful painted quilt block designs that have adorned barns around the country for over 300 years. For my barn block lovers, there are 2 barn designs included. Here's a great article on the history of barn quilts: American Barn Quilts
Corner Star is my own fun twist on the traditional Ohio Star quilt block. This variation is perfect to make out of Ombre fabrics, a curated fabric collection, or from your scrappy scraps. I love the look of Corner Star in Magenta Ombre. Scroll down to see a few different color variations.
The Corner Star Quilt Block is ideal for fine-tuning and building your piecing skills. It includes Quarter Square Triangle blocks (QSTs) and a 4-patch block. Be sure to check out last month's awesome tutorial on how to nest and spin your seams. It will come in really handy for the Corner Star pattern.
The Corner Star Quilt Block, along with the other QBM blocks, measure 12.5"x12.5", unfinished. Each block is FREE during the month of December, so you can combine blocks into a fabulous quilt or pick and choose your favorites. (Scroll down for the list of designers and links to their patterns).
