Scrappy 8 Point Star Block {30/52}

I was in the mood for a little bit of foundation piecing on the weekend. Do you ever just get into those sorts of “moods”?

I wanted make something which would utilise some of my scrap tub, so I decided that what ever I foundation pieced needed to be scrappy. The end result was this Scrappy 8 Point Star Block, made solely with fabric scraps.






Can you imagine how bright and fun a Scrappy 8 Point Star quilt would look? Little pieces of your favourite fabric scraps, incorporated into a formal block.

If you’d like to have a go at making this block, download the foundation templates HERE.




To make the star, you will need to make 4 x A templates and 4 x B templates.

Once all pieced onto the paper, each A template is joined to the left hand side of a B template. These 4 smaller pieced blocks are then all joined together to create the star block.





I haven’t created a full tutorial for this block, but if you’d like one, please leave a comment and I’ll take photo of each step next time I make a Scrappy 8 Point Star block.

What a great block! I love the black and white centre surrounded by all those bright colours. I have been paper piecing a Chewbacca block. Lots of brown...
