Sew and Tell Friday: Patriotic Wonky Stars

It’s Sew and Tell day!  Go over to Amy’s blog and share what you’ve been sewing this week!

I was originally going to tell you about the giraffe mei tai that I mentioned I had finished.  But then, I saw that Kim is hosting Sew and Tell this week, and well, the finish I’m about to show you is for Kim.  It seemed fitting that I should show it off for the Sew and Tell link party.

Kim is the queen bee for the month of May in my Bee a {modern} Swapper flickr group.  She requested 18-inch wonky star blocks that she’s planning to use make a quilt (or more, if she has enough blocks) for Soldier’s Angels.  While each member of our group is only required to make 2 blocks, since this is for a good cause, I made up a couple more.

The advantage of this larger 18-inch block (rather than the more standard 12-inch quilt block) is that I have a full 6-inch in the center to play with so rather than use a single cut of fabric, I had some fun in there.

Patchwork center:

Pinwheel center:

Wonky star within a wonky star.  I think this one is my favorite.

Quarter square triangles.  I like that the solids in the center make a sub-pattern of a pinwheel on point.

Which one do you like the best?
