Reach for the Stars: Sherri’s Blocks 5 and 6

Oh boy! I get to show you two new blocks in Sherri Crisp’s version of Reach for the Stars, the series sampler quilt unfolding in consecutive issues of Quilter’s Newsletter magazine. Sherri, who’s from Knoxville, Tennessee, is one of a small but growing group of quilters whose progress is being charted here and on Jennifer Gwyn’s website/blog,

First, behold Sherri’s  Block 5 . . .

Don’t you love the pinwheel effect?

Here is Block 6 as a square . . .

  1. Especially love the one at top, like a Delectable Mountain Pinwheel. Very cool to see a new spin on two old faves.
