May I introduce to you the "ET Phone Home" block, so called because it's made up of equilateral triangles making three stars, so ET and stars so ET Phone Home. Those of you who know quilt blocks will probably rush to tell me that this is in fact some other block designed many moons ago but, until then, it's ET Phone Home.
I designed and made it for Kati from the Blue Chair for this month in Stash Trad Bee, a bee where we make traditional blocks from stash. Kati asked for 12" paper pieced star blocks. Well I like nothing more than drawing up a paper piecing block and this was quick and easy to do using Touchdraw for iPad - I drew up the block and broke it into templates which I printed and pieced.
