Welcome to our Blazing Star 2017 community. Take a look around to discover the magic behind the making. It’s just as inspiring as you would imagine.
Not only do we really love the look of this block, but we’re having so much fun making it (and learning as we go!) too. As you quilt along, you’ll see that Wild Goose Chase uses an easy and quick method for making flying geese. Its construction also highlights a less common way of making a square-in-a-square block that uses HSTs to control the bias.
There’s so much fun to be had the next 6 months, and we’ll be with you every stitch of the way. Don’t forget to join our social community on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram so you can connect with your fellow quilters! Just use hashtag #BlazingStar2017 when you share and search.
We recently sat down with the witty, gregarious, fun and talented designer and instructor behind the 2017 Blazing Star Block of the Month quilt and, well, it's safe to say we love her!
With a passion for mixing modern details into classic quilt designs, Nancy loves adding her own flair to everything she makes. "It's about injecting new elements that really just make you say 'wow!'" And this year's Block of the Month is no exception. A combination of vibrant colors and bold shapes, the Blazing Star celebrates what McNally calls "tradition with a twist."
