BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Bright Morning Star

Sample Quilt Layouts


The choice of your quilt layout for the Bright Morning Star will depend on whether you want the stars or the overall design to be the focus. This is evidenced in the two sample quilts shown below.

Note that, although the quilt layout shown on the left features the "stars", a secondary pattern seems to emerge as you place the blocks side by side. The quilt layout which is illustrated on the right uses an on point setting with several blank blocks to showcase your quilting skills. Which would you choose, or would you design one of your own?
