Quilting Life Block of the Month | August

Hello and happy August! Today I'm excited to share this month's block...a variation on the Martha Washington Star!

I love the pinwheel center in a traditional sawtooth star block, and the half-

square triangle corners add an extra touch of whimsy to this design.  I thought it was time to add some more blues to the mix of colors I've been using in the blocks.

While I've used just two print fabrics along with background for my block, the pattern diagram gives you an additional variation using three print fabrics + background.

I love how all of the blocks look together!  Go here to download the PDF for the August block...happy quilting!

Also, if you are new here, you can find links to all of the block patterns for 2017 on the home page for the Quilting Life 2017 Mystery Block of the Month!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
