This is the ‘Starshine Beauty’ block from EQ’s library. The layout started out to be ‘Stars – 15′ from EQ’s layout library but the resulting quilt was ‘way too busy. I eliminated the outer row of triangular and diamond shaped blocks from the layout and enlarged the remaining blocks to fill the space. There! More what I had in mind.
I am NOT a fan of New York Beauty blocks. I do think the block would be easy and fun to sew but the resulting quilts just don’t appeal to me. This is probably another case of “If-I-ever-MADE-one-I’d-change-my-mind” and then love quilts made with this block.
