Block #42 - Kind of - Well really 2 somewhat versions

I think that I have made it plain over
the years that piecing is not my first choice.

One of the reason I prefer appliqué is that with
pieced blocks you have to pay too much attention -
you can't just relax and sew.

The top block is the first one I made.
The bottom block is how Carrie designed it.

You can go to Moda's blog and download
the pattern by clicking here.

It's a really neat block and I think I put mine 
together automatically -but wrong- because my way
there is a pieced star in the block.  
We all know how much I love pieced and
appliquéd stars.  
If you want to make the block my way just sew 
the top, bottom and side sections between 
the corner squares in backwards - or upside down.

And speaking of stars -

This is Star Gazing.
