Another Chopped Block and Crumb Star Pillow

I showed you guys a chopped four-patch in my last post. This month, in the Stash Bee, Bonnie asked for a chopped and resewn block called the intersection block. You can find a tutorial for it here

The block was so fun and easy that I made two. feb stash bee blocks completedMy second project for the Stash Bee is a prize. Everyone in the entire Bee (not just my small group) who sent their blocks in on time got a chance to win. I volunteered to make the winner, Amanda, a 12″ crumbs pillow sham. Her favorite color is blue and she chose a star.

Ta-Da! Isn’t it wonderful? You can buy these in my etsy shop and, as always, I love doing custom orders. Letters, symbols, numbers and even the shapes of states are available.

The next post will feature some cute baby quilts and a guest blogger!

    I do like your star pillow – great idea and generous of you to make it as the prize. I also like the intersection block. I hadn’t seen that slice and dice before, and I think it would make a great scrap quilt.
