STAR CHALLENGES - - QUILTER'S CHOICE





Since the beginning of the year Charlie has been presenting us with various star patterns that we can use to make quilts.  She even purchased a projector for herself in order to demonstrate the steps in making the blocks at a guild meeting.  Charlie sent me links for instructions for making SAW-TOOTH STARS as well as links for the other stars she has demonstrated.  Since the beginning of the year Charlie has been presenting us with various star patterns that we can use to make quilts.  She even purchased a projector for herself in order to demonstrate the steps in making the blocks at a guild meeting.  Charlie sent me links for instructions for making SAW-TOOTH STARS as well as links for the other stars she has demonstrated.  



Charlie's challenge:  SEEING STARS
Make a 12-1/2 inch (unfinished) block with star points each month until the end of the year. By then you will have enough to make a quilt! 
Also, make ONE EXTRA BLOCK FOR CHARLIE. She will then assemble them into a quilt for Charity! They can be whatever fabric you like! She will make it work! Please have a star block for Charlie by May if you can!
