Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 76

This weeks gorgeous block is Star of Spring. Although we already have some beautiful star blocks for our quilt, I love this one because it's simple, stunning and very dramatic. This is a paper pieced block and its very easy to sew; two quick and easy sections, sewn together and your block is complete.
A bit of basic astronomy here, but we do see different stars during each of the four seasons. The earths rotates on its axis, causing the movement of the night sky. As earth orbits the sun, we experience different seasons and see different parts of the night sky.(It makes you feel so small in comparison.)
Spring is such a respite after a long and cold winter, so apart from the obvious signs that Spring is on the way, spotting that glistening star would be cause for celebration. That alone, makes this a special block and a lovely reason to include it in our quilts.
