Stars In Your Eyes

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of horses. I still love horses. So when my quilt guild had a "blox made modern" challenge" I thought I would incorporate some of that lovely Cotton and Steele Mustang fabric. This is for every little girl who has "Stars in Your Eyes" every time they see horses.

The challenge was to take a traditional block and make it modern. So I took an Ohio Star block and made it modern.

It is modern because:
     1. Scale: this block is 24"x 45"
     2. Wonky/Improv: the center is not square, the star points don't match
     3. Lots of negative space with solid fabric
I plan to back it and quilt it, leaving it this size for a nice wall hanging.

Today I'll link up with Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday

Color Me Quilty!



  1. Pat, your mustang block is really cool! I was a horse crazy girl too. There must be a lot of us, judging from the Cotton + Steel fabric.

  2. Yes! So cool! Hey I'd like to welcome you to stop by and share at Tuesday Archives as STARS is one of our themes this week. V:) myplvl.blogspot.com

  3. Oversize is as intimidating to me as miniature. But I like the effect a lot. claire aka knitnkwilt

  4. Great response to the challenge!
