Stars & Pinwheels QAL – Block 3 – Chunky Star

Susan3 (3)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   ….

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.

  1. I love what you made with them. I love your star fabrics! I can’t decide which one I like best, and that means you made two top-notch stars. 😉 Thanks for linking back.

  2. So pretty and I love the color scheme – I recently have started collecting patterns for bags because we need them for so many things these days………groceries, farm market etc… These look like the perfect bags for those things!
