Christmas Star Block

Every once in awhile, I come across a new quilt block or tutorial, and I know I just have to make it, right now!  Does that ever happen to you?  Yesterday, it happened.  I was reading the blogs I follow on Bloglovin, and Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts had posted her tutorial for the Christmas Star Quilt Block.  Right away, I knew I wanted to make one, and I even had a charm pack of Kate Spain's Jingle to make it out of!  To make it even more enticing, Alyce included the rest of the directions to make the star block into a pillow cover!  Well, if you read about my Quest, you will know that I need one more pillow cover for the ugly gray pillows I am trying to cover up!  This will be the perfect thing!

Today, I added some dark green borders, and now I'm ready to finish up the pillow front with some 2.5 inch square border pieces according to Alyce's tutorial.  Finally, I'll quilt the front and put the rest of the cover together.  Love a quick and useful finish!

And linking this up to Sew Cute Tuesday!
