A Starry Mystery Quilt

Mystery QAL - Ohio Star

A quick post to show off the next two blocks in the Mystery QAL hosted by Sheila at the Bluepatch Quilter. This is called an Ohio Star. I bet a lot of quilters know that, but it is the first time I made one.

This is the other one.  I am so liking these traditional blocks made with contemporary fabrics.

Mystery QAL - 5 blocks done

I know you have seen some of these before, but the group just gets better as more are done.

You can see that I am using a whole bunch of Amy Butler fabrics called Midwest Modern with Essex Linen/Cotton. I really like these, they are more geometric than her current lines. And they look so pretty and understated. I am really excited to see how this quilt ends up looking.

I hope you enjoy Father's Day.
