    WELCOME !!!!    I’m so  honored and blessed to have a block in QUILTMAKER’S 100 BLOCKS VOL 9.  Be sure to follow the blog tour this week April 28 – May 2, and see what the many block designers have created for you!

 

QMMS-140044-cover_200

CHRY STAR 1

 

     Here is CHERRY STARBURST.   Block #874 in Vol #9.  I LOVE (!) designing sampler blocks.  When I worked at a quilt shop, I taught many sampler block classes and have been a block fanatic since.

 

 

 

                I am almost finished making this quilt for PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD SHOW in June 2014.  This is actually a  computer-generated photo.  The nearly finished product is even more beautiful!

CHERRIES JUBILEE

CHERRY SCRAP BLOCK

 

        EXTRA BONUS!   With the “stitch and flip” construction, there are these wonderful pieces left, just waiting to make something fab!

 

 

 

CHERRY SCRAP PROJECT

 

        I started laying out some of these, playing with a design.  I plan to make a small wall hanging for our PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD  MINI – AUCTION.   Have plenty to make one for myself too.

     JUST FOR YOU –   leave a comment and be eligible for a drawing for your very own copy of QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCKS VOL 9.

 

 

      Thank you,   and Joyful Stitching to you all!

  15. Bev Gunn April 28, 2014 at 12:25 pm #

    Great block and neat idea to use the bonus pieces for another project! I hate to waste something already half done-just an old recycler at heart!

  23. Doris Rice April 28, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

    Nice block and I can’t wait to see what you do with the leftover crumbs.

  24. MaryLou April 28, 2014 at 1:27 pm #

    Your block is beautiful and interesting – looks quite complicated until you see it broken down into doable pieces – then makes you think I could probably do that..
    Sure make a lovely quilt – so that would put it on my list of want to do’s.
    Congradulations on creating such a pretty block.

  25. purlbuttons April 28, 2014 at 1:35 pm #

    What a lovely block and such a pretty name for it! I like the little left over bits that are usable and the idea that you can make an entire mini quilt is very exciting to me. Waste not, want not!

  26. SuzK April 28, 2014 at 1:38 pm #

    this block is brilliant! can’t wait to get my copy of this issue

  27. Annmarie April 28, 2014 at 1:43 pm #

  30. Auntie Clark April 28, 2014 at 1:52 pm #

    Love red & white quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  31. Laura McFall April 28, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    LOVE this block! The motion created when they are put together is awesome. And only two colors really helps me because I tend to be paralyzed by indecision when there are too many choices to make!

  32. Melissa-lynn April 28, 2014 at 2:14 pm #

    Ooh i love love love this block and the bonus blocks at the end!! The red and cream is beautiful!! Or a black and taupe or a blue and tan….ooh i love 2 color quilts!!!

  35. Gwen April 28, 2014 at 2:42 pm #

    I really love how the block plays out in the quilt. And the extra bonus blocks in the 2 for 1
    sewing is always fun. thanks!!

  36. Quiltmouse April 28, 2014 at 2:58 pm #

    I’m a block tester for QM’s 100 Blocks and I was able to test your block. It is a striking block and my husband has requested a full size quilt using it. I think your block will be my 2-color quilt and I will make it in red. I got a giggle about your bonus – I had the same idea! The ‘extra’ pieces are sitting on my design wall waiting for a creation. Thanks for the lovely block. I posted your block on my blog today.

  37. Susan April 28, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    I love two-color blocks and especially the ones like yours where one can flip them around and create secondary designs. Great block.

  38. Anne Kendall April 28, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

    Beautiful design, and very striking in the rich red and white…I’m sure a lot of quilters are going to be using it!

  39. sandy April 28, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    Very striking in the two colours. Always fun to see the whole quilt too.
