Star Crossed Part One

Disclaimer:  The products in this post were given to my by Island Batik at no cost to me.
 My Island Batik Ambassador challenge for August is Star Light, Star Bright.  I've been working on it in between getting my three boys back to school.  One to college, one to high school, and the fourth grader is starting on this coming Monday.  I'm excited about the design for Star Crossed.  You can see my design idea, along with some of the new Island Batik fabrics above.

 I was able to cut all of my pieces out with the Accuquilt Go.  So quick, precise, and easy to use.  
I used the 8" qube and a couple of strip dies to cut out my quilt.

 Then I began a lot of chain piecing!  I'm making sets of twelve blocks each in three different colorways, purple, pink, and lavender.

 Here is my design wall showing many of the block units.

 This is one of the finished blocks.  Can you figure out how it is going to become a star?  I'll reveal the whole quilt in a future post.  I've just finished the quilting, so the big reveal should be in the next week or so.  Stay tuned!
