Wednesday posts for Round 8. My plan to locate and plan the block, then make it in time for the Wednesday post is meeting with many unexpected roadblocks. The B block caught up at D, the C blocks were made before the computer design was drafted for the blog, and now it's E and it will be another week before I sit down a the sewing machine for any major work as the leg with which I operate the pedal is the one with bursitis. So here we go again with just the computer sketches.
A comment was made last week that others than an avid quilter would not consider that different fabrics would make a big difference. I will someday (after bursitis) remake that block with different colors to display the impact. The star I show here in sketch, though, would be a good one for comparison as to how differently it looks in different colors.
Here, side by side, is a star that has many names in many sources. But in some it, as well as others, is calle the Eastern Star or the Star of the East.
Some other color choices:
