Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars

 Well, it looks like I finally drank the kool-aid and made me a few Twinkle Star Blocks.




Angela over at So Scrappy posted her instructions for making them.   They are the January block in her RSC16 Column Along Sampler.  I have not made any in the past because they looked far too fussy.  But when I read through the instructions, they looked really easy.
I just had to give them a try!



 Before I knew it, I had 9 blocks finished.  They run from the palest of blue up through almost black.

Ooops...I think this might mean I started another quilt.

  3. Gorgeous! I love how much fun you had with the center squares! Little did you know how trappy they are...
    They really are a fun block to do. I'm still thinking about joining the column quilt along, especially because of this first block, even though I'm already getting a twinkle-fix from the quilt I'm currently working on.

  9. Oooh, ooh, ooh, I love the shade progression -- kinda in my own wheelhouse lately -- I think you should proceed next month in the same fashion. Mind if I copy along? I have cut strips but haven't started my blocks yet ...

  14. Your blocks are gorgeous! I only have 2 done but am excited to make more. Now I am more confident about the variety of light, medium, and dark that will make these blocks look the best.

  27. Your twinkles with the colorful central piece was my inspiration. So I tore up my blue block and put in a new, more interesting center. So happy with it now. Thanks.

  28. Some blocks are like that, aren't they? They just take over! I especially like the one that looks black.
