I tried to take advantage of the New Year's holiday by sewing a bit. This month is Cheri's turn in the Sew Beautiful Bee. She came up with this awesome tutorial for putting together a carpenter's star quilt block. It took me a while to trim the 44 half square triangles, but I was able to finish this block yesterday.
The block is 18.5 inches unfinished, and although it took a bit of time to piece it, I think it looks so good! The prints Cherie sent are my favorite color scheme (green and blue) so of course that makes me love the block even more.
