Star Sampler Block #9

It's the last day of our Star Sampler blog hop! We hope you've enjoyed following along as much as we've enjoyed sharing these blocks. Today Monica from Diary of a Quilt Maven is sharing her block. Head over to her blog to see the tutorial, and then come back here to enter the giveaway to win a bundle of these gorgeous prints.
This sampler series of nine star blocks began last week and concludes today. The star blocks are made using Ro Gregg's Marblehead Venetian Glass fabrics. If you missed blocks #1-8, you'll find links for them at the bottom of this post.


Here's Monica's star block:

Looks like a lot of piecing, but it's all made of simple components: squares, half-square triangle units, flying geese units, and quick corners. Piece of cake, all done in warm-weather-inspired greens and blues. Find the tutorial here.

Thanks Monica!

      For a chance to win one of 3 fat quarter bundles of Marblehead Venetian Glass, sign up to follow Inspired by Fabric (using the "follow" button or the "follow by email" button in the right hand side bar) and leave an email letting us know you did, as well as telling us--which block is your favorite in this sampler? You can leave a comment to enter once for each post during the Star Sampler hop (9 entries total). The giveaway will be open through Monday, March 17th at 11:59 EST, and we'll randomly pick 3 winners on Wednesday of that week.

  16. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I follow via GFC. All of the blocks have been gorgeous, so it is hard to choose just one. I think I would probably choose Block #7 by Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts because of the white strip she added. It really makes the block pop.

  17. Bloglovin follower here. I really loved this series. Thanks so much. My favorite though is the Woven Ribbon Star, #8, by Tammy. It is so unusual, and I just loved it. However, that being said, the directions seemed a bit difficult, mainly due to the off set line cutting the triangle, 1/4 inch down on one side and 1/4 inch in on the bottom....but I imagine once you try it the directions will be easier than it sounds at first. Hope so!

  23. I follow by email. Hard to choose a favorite, but #8, Woven Star is great because it looks so complex, but the borders around the pieces of #7 is so different.

  24. I'm already a follower via email.

    I like them all, but to have to say which might be a favorite it would have to be #8 by Tammy, the Woven Ribbon Star. I like both the correct one and the oops.

    Thank you for all of these. They are really pretty using this fabric.
