This is block 3 in Susan’s quilt-along featuring stars and pinwheels, called Chunky Star. Once again, Susan has offered two versions – one with half-square triangles as shown in the picture at the beginning of the post ….
…and one with flying geese.
These are both easy blocks with good instructions.
I’m using the blocks from this quilt-along each month to make a small project. I decided to put these two blocks together in a favorite tie bag. I found this pattern online about 15 years ago and have made it in a large variety of sizes and fabrics. Along the way, I adapted it to make better use of the fabric and it took very little to make this nice lined bag which will be a gift for someone later this year.
