This is one of a set of twelve inch patchwork blocks associated with Carolyn’s free skill-builder course “Skilful Skyful”.
The patterns, complete with detailed instructions. link to videos and photo tutorials, and are available as free downloads.
These can just be used to practice new techniques, made into bags or cushions or could be combined into a Sampler Quilt.
This two colour Evening Star block is quite easy, and is a good chance to learn a quick-piecing technique for making Flying Geese units.
If the large central square is made of dark, rather than light fabric, the block is known as Single Star instead.
If you enjoy doing this, you might like to move onto the more complex Dutchman’s Puzzle next, which also uses Flying Geese units.
The Simple Skyful samples were made with Makower fabrics, kindly provided by the company.
