Patriotic Star ~ Celebrate Freedom

 I can't believe in two weeks it will be the 4th of July!
Where has this summer, I mean YEAR gone!

I wanted to show how  you can use these quilt blogs for more than just "sewing cards"  The Red, White and  Blue card stock turned the Eight Point Star Quilt Block Die into the Patriotic Star!
One trick I like to use is after choosing your colors for any of the quilt block dies, when you cut each one, before lifting the die off the plate, tape the back of the die with removable tape. That keeps all the pieces in place.  Do this for all colors,  then peel each one off and replace on the next color in the pattern you desire. This way you don't have all the separate pieces laying on your craft table.  Also a quick way to finish 3 or more blocks depending on your color choices at one time!
I love how this came out, simple yet elegant!
