It seems like forever since my last Delilah Block set has come in the mail! I have been patiently waiting while watching and drooling over the beautiful finished blocks of others popping up on Instagram and Facebook. Finally, here at the beginning of August the July North Star block came in!
I was so excited to open my package and see the pretty fabrics and new templates. Ooooh aren’t they pretty?:)
The hardest part of these blocks is always the cutting. I always breathe deep as I hope that the color combinations I choose are going on look good.
Cutting with these templates gives the same sharp points as I would get if I were paper piecing. But, yea! I’m not!:). There is hardly any waste of fabric and everything just sews together so easily. Three triangles make a larger triangle.
Put four of those squares together, and you get this beautiful North Star. No trimming seams or tearing away paper either:). Now we’re talkin’!
I made 5 beautiful North Star blocks and loved each one of them.❤️. I don’t think there could even be a bad color combination on this block:)
If you like this block and would like to join in, there might be a few openings online somewhere. You can look for the Delilah Template of the Month by Jen Kingwell, but rumor has it that all of the spaces are filled. If you can’t find an opening, don’t worry, I hear that there will be a book coming out next year. SWEET! I will definitely be buying it:)!
Thank you for stopping by and following along on my quilting and creative journeys.
