Hand-Pieced QAL - Block 5

This week's block, which Patty and Kristin call the Dorothy block, makes a pretty star with contrasting corners.  Find the tutorial for the block HERE on Kristin's blog.

Although for the other blocks, I've only used two fabrics, this week I chose three.  My focus ocean print fabric, a light gray blue for the main background, and a dark blue for the corners.

I fussy cut the center square to feature Nemo, a favorite movie character of ours!  He's hanging out with his friend, Mr. Ray!

I am really pretty happy with how my Dorothy block turned out!

Even the back doesn't look too bad.  

And now there are five blocks!

I'm already looking forward to next week's block!
