1930's Wonky Stars

One of the quilting bees I admin over on Flickr is called Sew Buzzy.  Our first month is this June and AntiqueRoses (Kristin) has started us off with a request for wonky stars made in 1930's reproduction fabrics.  Each person in the bee was mailed some white Kona cotton and a mix of 1930's repro fabric in one color--I received purple.  Everyone was assigned either one 12.5 inch block or two 6.5 inch blocks.  We could make additional blocks with the extra fabric if we wanted.  (You might be wondering who'd do the extra work, but you should know that we quilters are not only very helpful but very enthusiastic about quilts--so yes, most actually would!)  I completed mine over the Memorial Day weekend and they are already on their way to their new home.

Here is my 12.5 inch wonky star block in 1930's purples:

There was just enough extra white for a little 6.5 inch wonky star--I couldn't resist!  (Isn't it a cutie.)
