Nancy’s Passion 48: April

Yippie! I have finished my first star block! My confidence is climbing and I’ve decided to tackle the star blocks two at a time. This way I can chain piece the triangle squares and hopefully get more done in my hour each week.


The pattern I am using has six blocks in different colors so now I have chain pieced triangle squares for the next two colors (green and orange).


I use a scrap of fabric and start in the middle of the scrap piece to start my chain. It keeps first triangle square block from getting distorted. Then I kept my pieces pretty close together and all pinned and lined up the same way. I have the colorful fabric pressed over itself so it won’t show thru on the white.


Crazy, but the challenge is really fun! I am getting addicted to the little triangle pieces and it helps to not be in a big hurry.  I can’t wait to work on it every week!

  1. My favorite color is blue so I love the the first quilt.

  2. That is a terrific star block! I am really into stars at the moment (I’m taking a break from sewing one right now). I’m working on a new feature for my blog…a monthly star block tutorial. It’s going to kick off on August 1st. Check it out if you have a chance. I’m looking forward to seeing your star quilt progress. I love chain piecing those little triangle squares, too. They are fun to sew. Have a super day!
