For my Gadget challenge, I have decided to use red, white, and blue fabrics. Since I’m making this up as I go along, it’s probably going to be scrappy red, white, and blue for the 12 blocks I complete this year, using my unloved gadgets, rulers, dies, and what-have-yous (scroll through my Gadget Challenge topic). For each month, I will be using one of my gadgets to create a 12 inch block (12.5 inch unfinished). Those will then be combined into a single quilt top at year end.
For the month of January, I selected the #12 item on my list–my 2.5 inch Accuquilt strip die. All but 5 of these pieces were made using that die. Well, I could have done 4 others from it as well, but I have another way to do half-square triangles. And I just couldn’t make myself try to do it from strips.
Let me know if you like my block–I call it “Fractured Star”.
