This is block 9 in Susan’s Stars and Pinwheels QAL, called Arizona 2 with Flying Geese.

I’m continuing on this QAL to make a different small project with the featured block each month.  I reduced the size of the block to 7 inches to make it a good size for my mini quilt rack.

I used scraps from a lace curtain over fabric to make the setting triangles and found some pretty braid to embellish.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I added a vintage mother-of-pearl pin to the center.

This was an easy block and turned out so pretty.

  1. Oh, how pretty, Lillian! I love it with the pin and the doily. 7 inches? That must have been fun! It looks great in the smaller size. Thanks for making this block.
