Galaxy Star in Fandangle Fabric

Jen gave us the freedom to choose any block we wanted to make but gave us a few suggestions.  In this post, she choose several from Quilter’s Cache where there are quilt blocks galore!

I choose the Galaxy Star 9″ paper pieced block.

For colors, Jen requested the tertiary colors and I have the perfect fabrics.  These three prints are from Christa Watson’s new fabric line, Fandangle by Benartex.

The two tone on tone prints are Crosshatch in light grey and teal.  And print is Triangle Trinkets in teal.

I had fun brushing up on my paper piecing skills and even managed to keep the background fabric oriented correctly.

Karen made a woven star block for Jen and I’m looking forward to seeing more!
