This week's block comes to us from Deb Strain and is called "Friendship Star." I've known Deb longer than I've been with Moda because we knew each other prior from art licensing and attending shows like the Atlanta Gift Show and Surtex. She makes the loveliest artwork that warms your heart and she is just as warm and welcoming herself. A block named with "friendship" feels perfect coming from Deb!
I believe this week's block might be posted at the Moda blog as well as on the Facebook page. I hope you will also follow Deb Strain's work on instagram.
This simple star with arms like a pinwheel changes shape with corners filled in with color. Treat the rows separately with colors to emphasize shapes. When the color from the corners is the same as the angles like the lower left, it is like an aperture of a camera and the last one reminds me of shadow and light beaming out as a sweeping beam from a lighthouse.
Here is my small 4.5" block with a sunshine center. Thatched colors with Abby Rose sweeping lines and a Solana flower.
Here is the progress so far. I hope to have the leave/berry corners instructions up in the next week or two.
