Sewn Together November Blocks


Last night I was able to get a little sewing done. I decided to tackle my Sewn Together bee blocks for Anna. She asked for two wonky star blocks and gave us this awesome French themed black and white fabric. This was my first attempt at making wonky stars. She had us follow a great tutorial from the Silly BooDilly. I think I ended up with a little too munch wonk in my block (I had to rip a seam or two... Shhhh!) but I am pleased with the end result. So pleased that I'm linking up to Sew and Tell Friday's over at Amylouwho's blog.


My wonderful and amazing fiance even commented on these blocks. He really liked Anna's fabric choices and even liked the wonky star pattern, which is good to know because it's really tough to get him to settle on a design aesthetic that he likes sometimes.


Speaking of which... Yes, I am a bit obsessed with City Weekend at the moment and I really want to make a pillow for our couch out of my City Weekend stash but I'm trying to find a pattern that said wonderful and amazing fiance and I can agree on. We've settled on a couple different patterns that we both love.

The problem is we both really, really love Anna Maria Horner's 16 point star pillows (top left) and I can't find a pattern for a 16 point star anywhere and I KNOW I will need to paper piece something like that. Anyone out there know where I could find a pattern like that?


  1. hmmm....idk. Maybe send AMH an email?

  2. I'm loving this black and white fabric. I saw someone else working on this bee and that is going to be a fabulous quilt!
    I've never seen the 16 point star pillow, pretty cool! All the pillows are fantastic.

  3. The star pattern looks a bit like this one.

    Thanks for the fantastic wonky blocks.

  4. Great blocks! I love the look of black and white!

  5. Love the black and white and your blocks! Thanks for sharing!

  6. this looks great. these stars are my favorite

  7. Your blocks look great and I don't think you could go wrong with any of those pillows you showed.
