Shine on Sampler-Month 10

Written by Brenda


Let’s take a deep dive into the Sparkling Star Block for this month.  I’ve collected some charts and guides from AccuQuilt over the years and pulled them out to help me figure out the dies to use for this block. The big triangle is obvious after you look at the finished size of the unit, but I just wasn’t sure about the three little triangles.


And here is the photo that filled in the missing piece for me.  One #3 triangle die and five of triangle die #5 so cutting went very fast after I had this information.


I love how the AccuQuilt dies cut off the “dog ears!”  I remember trimming them directly over a garbage can and it seemed that only about 50% would actually land IN the trash.  Most had a tendency to fly far beyond!  Those snub nosed corners also help to line up the triangles.


Isn’t that a beautiful thing!  I did, again, press my seams open on this block.  When piecing this unit to the white #3 triangle, I kept this unit on top so I could see the tip of the white triangle to make sure I didn’t accidentally sew over it.



It makes for a beautiful subunit and a fantastic block.  Hope you have as much fun with this as I did!

I don't think I've ever been ready for a trip or event earlier than the night before. I have IDEAS for months, but those ideas don't come to fruition until the looming deadline of "if they don't trick or treat now, they don't trick or treat until next year" or "if you don't leave now, the airplane will leave without you" forces my hand and my sewing machine.
