October Block: Twinkle

Sophie-TwinkleStar-4jpgIn October, we are once again making monochromatic blocks, this time with a black background. Twinkle is a 9-9-inch square (finished size) star block.

I made this one.

The blocks are made with black (solid or BOB print) background, 2 fabrics in different shades of the SAME COLOR (of your choice) .   Complete guidelines and a links to the block pattern, optional template and paper piecing foundation pattern are in this post:


Twinkle, Twinkle, Monochromatic Stars in October


The maximum number of blocks you can make and enter for chances in the drawing this month is NINE.  If you make multiple blocks, you use the same black background in all your blocks and reuse other fabrics as long as none of your blocks are identical twins.

The target set size for our winners will be 48 blocks.
