Alternate Blocks

Some of the extra blocks I am making will look like this:
This is the first of the new batch, laid out ready to sew. I quite like the neutral star shape in the middle, although now I'm wondering what it would have been like to have a yellow star and neutral points on the outside. Too late now, this is how I made the chevrons! For a comparison with the original blocks, see the one on the left below:

After writing the above, I did a bit of googling and found out exactly how it would have looked to have the yellow star shape, as I found a few people who had done exactly that. (E.g. Here, here, here, and here!) But I didn't find anyone who did them the way I have, so I guess that makes mine a little bit different.


  1. I like the colour way you have done Vireya. After looking at the others, I love the blue of your other star, with a yellow star it might take the eye away from the blue. Well done, looking forward to see it all together.

  2. I like the different way you've assembled the block. Who wants to do exactly the same as everyone else, anyway? I certainly don't. But yours has paid off nicely.

  3. Nice results from you day with SCQ. Alternative color ways
    always create different secondary patterns.
