Meet Starburst:

I designed Starburst in January of 2013.

This was my original Starburst “logo” showing three different ways that you can use the block. (And add that the center one can be a solid star without the square in the very middle.) Can you tell that I like options in my designing?! πŸ˜‰

I’ve made this block the most for mug rugs – for swaps and gifts. It’s an easy way to highlight fabrics and color combinations. While also making something quick and small.

I especially love the binding I added to this! Those little strips of color are my favorite!!! (I favorite technique I love adding to all my bindings!)

I’ve been collecting Anna Maria Horner’s original Good Folks collection over the years and I decided a few years ago that I want to use my Starburst pattern for it. I’ve come up with a lot of mockup ideas, one of my favorites is below…

Here I’m trying to decide if I want a light background or a dark background. I really do love both!

I decided to not go with this layout though, and I’m actually going to go a lot simpler route, so I can keep the focus on the fabrics rather than the pattern. (one of the times I really want the fabric to show rather than the pattern… usually I like to make the pattern pop!)

So here’s what I’m going with…

I don’t know if it’ll be exactly like this, but close. I’ll do a variation of centers to add some interest. I think. I need to go back and check what my exact plan was before I continue. lol. I think I have all the fabric cut out though. At least I have some blocks made already.

Your Starburst projects

I only have a few photos, but I have really loved to see your creativity come through with this block!

That first mini quilt by Mary is sooo stunning!

What do you think??

Do you like these simple design blocks? Or are you more a fan of the complex and more detailed patterns?

I think it’s good to have a mix of simple AND the more complex ones. Sometimes you just need a quick project. And this is perfect for that!

I’d love to hear what you think!

Do you like it?!

Which project is your favorite?
