Starburst Quilt Along Week #8: Block #8 and Block #7 Link Up

The Starburst Quilt Along is now over, but the entire pattern is now available for purchase.

First, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has participated thus far. It has been so much fun seeing all of your blocks on your blogs and in the Flickr group:

Look at all of that quilty inspiration!

Secondly, only one more block next week! The time has simply flown by!

Now, on to more pressing matters: block #8!

This one is also pretty straightforward in my opinion. It does have small pieces for the center "C" block and the dark purple accents on the "B" blocks if you have scraps you want to use up, especially now that we are nearing the end of our journey!

Again, large scale prints would shine in the "A" blocks as the light purple fabric choice, if you have any.

Here are my two blocks:

If I had these to do over again, I might rethink the placement of the darkest purple in my blocks -- at least under the lighting conditions these pictures were taken, the purple ends up fading into the black. 

Have you finished your block #7 yet? Link those up! If you haven't yet gotten to #7 yet, link up anyways with your progress thus far! I'd love to see how far EVERYONE has come!

And if you've just started -- don't fret! You still have until January 15th to link up 9 finished blocks for a free wallhanging setting directions or 18 finished blocks for the throw size setting directions! Take your Christmas break time and use it for you to make some fantastic blocks!


  1. I added my block 5s. I'm just starting block 6...yikes I'm so far behind.

  2. Just stunning.Love all.Congrats to all the ladies!1

  3. I linked up my #6 blocks. I'm straggling along!
