Hello Everyone

This month’s block is called The Star of the East and can be found at: http://quilterscache.com/S/StaroftheEastBlock.html. The only problem is that it is a 6 inch block and it has the half square triangles at the edges. I have left them as plain, but you can do either one. It is also a paper-pieced pattern. The block I am using is a 12.5 inch block unfinished and I am using EQ Block Base to make it. I am attaching both the template and rotary cutting directions for a 12.5 inch block and the templates are the right size for cutting.

If you have Block Base, the number for the block is #3745 and is called Star of the East. You can click on print and it will give you the measurements when you enter the size of the block. Have fun.

I hope you enjoy making it as I believe it is a beautiful block for the holidays. Enjoy!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
