There’s just something about classic pinwheel and star blocks, aren’t there?

Marilyn Foreman (@quiltmoments) created a playful exploration of the pinwheel block that I couldn’t resist piecing.

And I love the rays coming out from the center of Shelley Robson’s Spinning Star block. Clearly I needed a Cat-ronaut at the center of the block directing all the fun!

Be sure to visit The Splendid Sampler website to see the other 2 blocks revealed today. And if you are sewing along, don’t forget to link up (on The Splendid Sampler site) your pieced version of any of the 4 blocks from today’s reveal to be entered to win a prize.

    Love this one! A fun pinwheel.

  3. What a cool design! I particularly like the fussy cut cat astronaut – super cute!

  4. Hello Yvonne, I especially like the Pinwheel Magic block. The designer did a wonderful job at creating a new layout for her pinwheel block! The fabrics you chose to make this block with work really well to detail each section. Great center selection for the Spinning Star! Which makes me think of your star, how is he doing? Plus, just as importantly, how are you doing?

    your sampler quilt is going to be really stunning when you join up all your bits. I am not really terribly keen on big sampler quilts, but these teeny blocks are going to be stupendous.

  10. Love these! They work so well with your space fabric. :-) The cat-ronaut cracks me up.

    Did you envisage when you started that these blocks would make offer so many opportunities for your cat-ronaut to shine or is it a happy accident? Either way, these blocks are both stunners.
