You might choose, as I did, to feature the star in this Butterfly Star quilt block as if set in the "night sky", represented by the dark blue. The two quilt layouts shown below are both designed using basic quilt block settings -- a side by side quilt, placing the blocks in a seeminly random arrangement, as if the stars were sparkling above, here and there at night -- and an on point setting with the additional brightness in the setting triangles.
|Nine Patch||Uneven Nine Patch|
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.
