Queen Bee - My Double Star Block ^o^

I was the Queen Bee of January 2013 in my quilting group Desi Quilters. I was so excited and I already hearted  this block I saw on Flickr, but could not find any tutorial about it. 
So, I sat dawn and drawn my own based on the picture I saw on Flickr.  I called it Double Star block. This quite simple to make. 
First, here’s what you need: 1 - Background color  is BLACK 2- Star colors: 2 CONTRAST COLOR and use ONLY SOLID
So, here we go :
THE CUTTING: BLACK fabric: -Cut  4 ½ “ x 4 ½ “ -  4 pcs -Cut 4 ½ “ x 2 ½ “  - 8 pcs -Cut 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 4 pcs
SOLID  contrasting color: -Color  #1 : 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 7 pcs -Color #2 : 2 ½” x 2 ½ “ – 7 pcs
Finished block: 12" x 12" 

THE METHOD: 1.Making flying  geese:
Take 4 BLACK 4 ½” squares and take 4 pcs of each 2 ½” squares of solid and make into 4 flying geese .

Remembering Autumn

I love to watch the nature changes its color in Autumn. In this side of India (NE India) we don't see much of those lovely colors. Except the colors of the olive leaves in my garden and the star fruit tree, but still it was something. 

I made this mini quilts as an entry for Diwali Challenge in Desi Quilters and  made it to the top 4 yay ^o^

and these combination of yummy fabrics is available in my etsy shop
There are so many things I want to share here with you all. It just that life gets busy sometimes and as much as I like to write now, I must go back to my beloved Ms. Bernette and finish the custom orders.
Until then... Happy Sewing
