WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This is the start of my next Quilt of Valor. I’m going to make large Carpenter Stars. This one finished at 24 inches.

Carpenter Star #1

I wasn’t a big fan of them when they started showing up all over but they grew on me. I’m really liking this one.

The next block I made was for the Quilt Around the World II swap. This person wanted something geometric.

I found this free pattern here.

Here’s all the blocks so far.

I really love the middle blocks in the first and second rows.

After a few weeks off I finally picked up the hand piecing project again. I got one flower finished up so I can link up to One Flower Wednesday.

  1. Is the carpenter star the same thing they are calling the “Swoon”? It is certainly a big block to tackle and yours is lovely. Pretty little hexie flower too!
