I don't know who to attribute this saying to. It's one that was on my mind when I was choosing a block to make for Sarah this month. In the HipBee's Sarah asked us to pick a block of our choosing so she could make a sampler quilt. I knew straight away I wanted to make a block with stars because of this staying and also because when it was my month in this bee I asked for stars.
I have not met Sarah but I consider her a friend due to her unfailing kindness and support shown to me online.
The block is based on the Star Gazing block designed by Angela Pingel, I couldn't do the star gazing block exactly because as I started cutting the back ground fabric I realised I wasn't going to have enough even if I didn't do the third small star. I could have asked for more fabric, but as it's close to the end of the month I decided to modify the block by sneaking two squares of Summersville fabric into two opposing corners. As I was working with one solid and two prints for this block I decided to fussy cut some of the Summersville for the centres and as that would mean I'd not used very much of that fabric, it seemed an obvious choice to use in the corners.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend what ever you are doing.
