DS QAL: Lesson 9 – Block 8 and Request for Blocks

Delightful Stars Quilt-Along

For this week’s Delightful Stars Quilt-Along (DS QAL) lesson we are making Block #8, one of our easier blocks to complete. Here is my version:

I also updated the quilt layout, replacing two blocks and moving a few around. Here’s the final version:

Please Send Me a Friendship Star

To commemorate the making of the Delightful Stars Quilt, I would be honoured if you would send me a friendship star block that you’ve signed with your name and location. These blocks will be pieced together for the back of my quilt.

The cutting instructions and construction diagram for the block are below. The unfinished block measures 9.5” square. If you wish to come up with your own block design, that is fine, as long as it is 9.5” unfinished. You can use your Delightful Star fabrics or other 100% cotton fabrics.

In the centre of the block, please write, with a permanent marker (or embroider), your name and location (state/province and country). See tips on writing on fabric with permanent markers.

All blocks must be received by May 31st, 2014. In the United States, mail your blocks by May 16th. Overseas, mail your blocks by air by May 16th or by ground (boat) by April 15th. In Canada, mail by May 22nd. Please include a note with your name and email address written very clearly so that I can thank you once your block has been received.

Mail to:

Michele Foster
509-261 Cooper Street
Ottawa, ON K2P 0G3 (Canada)

Sending a star block to me is completely optional. Please don’t feel obligated to send one.
