The Lonely Crayon

Hi all, my name is Amy. 
I blog over at The Little Beansprout. 
I was so excited after our first meeting that I 
went home and thought about our very first block. 

The Lonely Crayon

I couldn't wait to get started. 
this is most likely the fastest I have 
ever completed a homework 
assignment. (I had it done the next day)

I loved that we were to choose the least used color in our crayon box.
I choose golden yellow 
Although I use yellow I always tend to use a pale variation of the color. 
but this yellow sang to me. 

It reminded me of the  golden rod that we would find in fields as kids. 
We would bring it home to mom and she would put it in a simple vase. 

This block was my first wonky star. 
and now I am hooked. 
I paired it with a 30's repro
they are about my favorite fabrics ever. 

I am absolutely in love with this block. 
i adore how it all came together. 

I have never designed a block before and I loved the entire process. 

I was so inspired I stitched this one up as well. 

 Happy Quilting. 



  1. Amy, both of your wonky stars are delightful - thanks for sharing them! Designing your own is always special and I'm betting you'll do it again. I hope other members will ask me to put them on as guest bloggers so we can see what they are doing.

  2. So good!!! Oh I wish I could do it;) My MIL is making a quilt out of my daughter's Tshirts from her H.S years for her graduation gift!

  3. love, love, love these block! i am especially loving the star within a star. amazing!
