Same block, different size

Today's entry in the Civil War series, the North Star.

As Barbara Brackman pointed out, this is often known as the Sawtooth Star, and it happened that that's what's already up on my design wall. I'm making a Fire-Engine themed quilt for Norris' great-nephew Kason. His blocks are 12 inches finished compared to the 8 inches of these blocks.

Delighted to be able to follow your new blog Cheryl. I cannot believe you have sewed your second block so quickly!!! I loved looking at the other blocks (for Kason) and I hope he likes the quilt when he receives it.
Btw, I will continue to read about the snow - cats - trees etc on the other blog. I so love looking at the scenery around your home.

Snap! I just posted my block(s) also. I knew you would have this one done quicksmart.

I adore your center fabric Cheryl!! I am enjoying fire engine fabric too. Is that part of a collection of fire trucks or do you have them in a stash of fire trucks
