A Block for Joanna

In the Bee Unique, Bee Knotty bee, Joanna sent each of us several pieces of beautiful sea glass-colored solid cottons and asked us to make a block that had strong geometrical design. She hinted that she would love to have something paper-pieced. She also asked that we avoid pinwheels. This is my block for Joanna:

I started the design by using a snowflake block from the EQ7 block library, but guess what was in the middle of the block? That’s right – a pinwheel. So I removed the pinwheel shape and drew a star in the center of the block and slightly changed the angle of the light grey segment. I love the way it turned out. I like it much better than the original design.
I packed it up and sent it on its way home to North Carolina yesterday. I look forward to seeing Joanna’s completed quilt.
Until next time,
