Shortcut Star Block {SHQAL}

Happy Scrappy Monday! Today, we're sharing the Shortcut Star block in the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along.

I must admit that this is probably my least favourite block so far in this quilt along. They can't all be favourite blocks, can they? This one just didn't go well for me, right from the start. It needed a lot of unpicking and the bits still didn't line up properly. 

Here on Lori's Shortcut Star Quilt, from her book Scrappiness is Happiness, this block makes a very effective quilt and really looks great. 

The Scrappiness is Happiness book is by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet and includes 32 Scrappy Quilts to make. It's available from the Fat Quarter Shop along with a huge variety of Lori Holt designed fabrics you can use to make this or any of her quilts. 

Here are a few links to the various bits and pieces:

  1. Well, it's a pretty block, even if it wasn't easy or fun to make. You made good fabric choices.
