Today I am sharing the Starburst block which is Block 8 of the Bella Skillbuilder QAL. We are getting close to the end when it will be time to put all of the blocks together! Take a look at all of the blocks on my design wall.
Bella Skillbuilder QAL Month 8
Were you able to find the Starburst blocks on my design wall? It was fun to use almost all of the Bella colors that are in the quilt.
This month’s block uses the Creative Grids Starburst 30 Degree Triangle Ruler but there is a template you can copy and use in the free pattern.
It took no time at all to make the sections for the Starburst blocks.
When all 4 sections were sewn together then it was time to trim the Starburst block to a 12 1/2 inch square.
The Creative Grids 12 1/2” Quilting Square Ruler is an optional choice to square up your block at the very end.
Don’t forget to download Block 8 – Starburst free pattern which you’ll find at Fat Quarter Shop.
Here is a neat photo of the block before it was trimmed and several that are done. I did goof and trim one block wrong but I don’t think anyone will notice when it is in the completed quilt.
Visit the Fat Quarter Shop Jolly Jabber Blog for more info on the Bella Skillbuilder Block 8 and to see what the other quilt bloggers are sharing.
Watch the video to see how Kimberly and Sherri make the Starburst block.
Here is a photo of what the finished quilt will look like.
