The Teeny Tiny Star Block is Done



There are 45 pieces that make up this nine-patch block. Most are the size of my thumb nail. It measures 4.5 inches.

It was not hard at all.

Yesterday morning I was ready for work 1/2 hour early. I decided to spend the time working on the 8 remaining blocks. I finished them all in exactly thirty minutes.

Now I have to find a use for these cute little stars. I am pretty sure the two I have done will end up in the points at each end of a table runner.

I am also considering them as the center block for the same star. It would finish as a big 13-inch star with a clone of itself in the middle. I have always admired others work when I've seen blocks like that. Before computers I would never have been able to figure out how to size my own pattern to fit. It's a snap to do with the help of computers so I will most certainly try one of them. It may become a pillow since I really don't want to do a whole quilt. Perhaps I will make a set of new pillows for the living room. I am bored with the current look.

I absolutely love this block!!! Can you tell me how to find the pattern?! I am part of a group making blocks for a fellow quilter who's husband has terminal cancer and we are making her a love quilt. All the blocks are churn dash blocks but I want something beautiful for the 4.5 inch center square and this would be perfect!!! Thank you so much!
